Established in 2005, ECOPA is a consulting firm specialized in the provision of economic analysis services to governments and international organisations. Partners are former staff from Toulouse School of Economics and staff include graduates and PhDs from ENS Cachan, HEC Paris, Paris School of Economics and CERDI. Through its close ties with academia and in-house research expertise, ECOPA combines practical policy experience from international best practice with applied research in economics. This two-pronged approach has been implemented in areas requiring rigorous analysis of economic policies – including ex post policy and program evaluations and taxation.
Since its establishment, ECOPA has carried out some 40 international assignments for multilateral banks (e.g. the World Bank Group), international organisations and government bodies (inter alia: ILO, the WAEMU Commission, AFD, SNV)
