Cross-cutting themes

Our cross-cutting expertise allows us to work more effectively with policymakers, creating stronger public policies that support economic growth, reduce poverty, and address social disadvantage.

Our teams

As well as sector specialisms, we are also able to draw on the cross-cutting expertise of our dedicated teams throughout the business. This multi-sectoral approach gives us a deep understanding of a county’s political economy, meaning we can better research, design, implement, and evaluate impactful public policy.

Our teams of cross-cutting specialists, include:

  • Research and evidence: our team members in monitoring, evaluation, and learning; research management; and data innovation, bring together communities of practice to bridge the gap between evidence and practical policy delivery.  
  • Macroeconomics and diagnostics: delivered through the Office of the Chief Economist, enhancing the impact of our work in development economics.
  • Gender equality and social inclusion: shaping just, inclusive, and sustainable public policies that empower women and marginalised groups across sectors we work in.
