Adam Smith International was founded in 1992 in response to the growing international interest in practical advice on economic and government reform. They are now a leading independent governance and economic consultancy. They are based in London, Delhi and Nairobi and have project offices throughout the world. Their aim is to apply their professional and consulting skills, independence and rigour in the fight against poverty and for economic growth for the citizens of countries facing the need for good governance, economic and social change. They work throughout South Asia, Africa, the Middle East, the Caribbean, South East Asia and East Europe. They provide high quality governance and economic thinking underpinned by practical support for ministers, officials and citizens at all levels.  They have an international reputation for providing authoritative technical expertise and for being pragmatic and committed to getting things done, often in the most difficult circumstances. They have a long-established reputation and extensive experience of delivering development projects that work, and contribute to sustainable outcomes. The projects they have undertaken are wide ranging and include good governance, civil service reform, institutional capacity building, decentralisation, economic reform, and educational and social development.  Key to the way they work is the combination of their consultants’ world-class technical expertise with the exceptional project management and coordination skills of their core group of full time staff supported by a strong administration team. They ensure sustainable outcomes by putting a strong emphasis on the need to work in full partnership with their counterparts. This has enabled us to establish a strong reputation as trusted advisers who work hard to understand local needs and practices, to tailor international experience to the local environment and to build the ownership needed to achieve lasting change.
