Public Policy and Research

There are critical links between research, learning and action. At EA, our research identifies gaps in the market, new policies and makes informed solutions. We ensure that quantitative and qualitative information about clients is incorporated in our work to give clients a “voice” in the process.  Our research is markedly independent and objective.
