Economic growth policies, local innovation ecosystems, better know-how, strategic plans… all are tools that increase economic development. I have been working with different national and city governments on plans or analysis of some of their policies.
Impact evaluation looks to assess the change attribute to a particular policy or project. They seek to answer cause-and-effect questions. I have been working evaluating projects with the World Bank and other institutions, evaluating the impact of an intervention in a population or a territory.
Creating a local innovation ecosystem is very relevant to develop economic growth. I have been working with cities studying how to strengthen and foster the local innovation ecosystem.
I have been writing articles about international development and public policy in media such as: ESglobal, Agenda Pública, El País or El Norte de Castilla. I have also been developing pieces of research about issues like resilience, economic development, humanitarian, innovation or social entrepreneurship.
