Economic Development is about government, the private sector and civil society working together to create equitable prosperity. EWMI supports this process by working with and through local institutions, building local capacity, and helping lay the legal, institutional and regulatory foundations of growth. Countries where the Rule of Law is strong, where communities begin to know and stand up for their rights will become more prosperous. Whether at the national or local level we believe that socially and environmentally sustainable economic growth is achieved alongside a strengthened rule of law. In training financial supervisory authorities and central bankers, in promoting land rights awareness, in strengthening rural producer groups we put this principle into practice. EWMI staff and consultants have worked on various types and stages of projects including design and implementation, as well as monitoring and evaluation, company/employee surveys and innovative research.
