International development

Just Economics has a portfolio of projects relating to international development. These have focused on ICT for development, gender, sustainable investment and value for money (VfM). In 2017, we worked with ITAD and ODI to examine the use of value for money measures in interventions for women and girls in low-income countries. We are currently supporting Microsoft to measure the impact of its Youthspark programme. This includes fieldwork in Asia, Africa and Latin America. We have also worked with international development organisations, including CAFOD and Stamp Out Poverty.

Principles of socially-responsible investment

How can investors be encouraged to consider more than purely commercial and short-term gains? Various sets of investment principles have emerged in recent years to guide socially responsible investment. These principles aim to incorporate social, environmental and governance criteria into investment decisions in order to enhance the benefits and reduce the damaging effects of investment for development. This review for IIED takes a first step in assessing the content, take-up, implementation and impact of the four main sets of principles for socially-responsible investment.
