UK Prosperity Fund

We are very proud to be part of the evaluation of the UK’s Prosperity Fund.  This fund aims to reduce poverty and support sustainable development.

Environment Agency

We just completed the valuation of new ways of working for the Environment Agency. The Agency has embedded staff in local authorities and asked LIVE Economics to assess the value of this collocation. After completing a feasibility study  in early 2018 we now worked with Effie Pitsaros and Derrick Jones Economics to conduct the valuation study.  The study demonstrates net benefits of knowledge sharing and close communications.


Following on from our work with  ICF on the evaluation of the OfGem pilot of “Check your energy deal” and a review of logic models and theories of change for the Marine Management Organisation, MMO in 2018 we have now completed an evaluation of events for the Department of International Trade.

Together we risk solutions we are working for the Food Standards Agency to develop a new method to prioritise and value the research the commission. FSA’s research contributes to safer food and public health in the UK.

Frontier Economics

LIVE Economics has a number of projects with Frontier Economics to develop and evaluate new policies for DEFRA. These include an assessment of the growth potential in rural areas in England and an evaluation of support for the rural economy.

VSC Consulting

Together with VSC consulting we have delivered a cost benefit analysis for the animal health services in a middle income country. Challenges included the high value that a few livestock animals can play in the wealth and income of households, insufficient data and low take up of services. Our next project with VSC is an evaluation plan for the Blue Forests initiative to reduce the loss of Mangrove forests.
