ECIAfrica Consulting (Pty) Ltd. is an economic development consultancy based in Johannesburg, South Africa. Established in 1994, ECIAfrica has designed and implemented assignments throughout Africa for a variety of clients including government institutions, non-governmental organisations and private sector organizations such as the World Bank Group, the US Agency for International Development, the UK Department for International Development, and a host of government organizations in Southern Africa. ECIAfrica is a subsidiary of DAI, a leading international development consultancy based in Washington, DC. Initially formed in 1994 through a joint venture between DAI and South African development experts, ECIAfrica remains a strategic partner of DAI with deep corporate ties, including overlapping history, personnel, and mission.  ECIAfrica takes a multi-sectoral approach to economic and management development consulting. Our specialist staff are organised within three primary technical areas: Agribusiness and Rural Development; Enterprise Development; Public Administration. Each sector enriches the other’s work in research, project design, assessment, policy development, market analysis, institutional capacity building, and product development.   What We Do ECIAfrica takes a multi-sectoral approach to economic and management development consulting.  Our team works together across sectors to ensure a holistic approach to specific assignments. Infrastructure is the bedrock for rolling out service delivery. Institutional and capacity management is equally vital in addressing the provision of basic services. Development finance and enterprise development overlap with agriculture, rural development, and public sector infrastructure and service delivery, and all sectors of the economy – public and private – are affected by the HIV/AIDS pandemic. This flexibility allows the ECIAfrica team to develop tailored solutions for its clients. Agriculture and Agribusiness - Growing rural incomes by linking producers to markets, and leveraging technological and institutional change to boost productivity in an environmentally sustainable way. Development Finance - Developing sustainable financial services to drive economic growth and reduce poverty. Enterprise Development - Strengthening micro, small, and medium-sized enterprises, linking them to viable markets, and integrating them to the formal economy. Governance - Building effective, transparent and accountable governance and civil society. HIV/AIDS Mitigation - Spearheading public, private and nongovernmental organisation sector programmes to confront the HIV/AIDS pandemic. Infrastructure and Service Delivery - Promoting effective policy, planning, budgeting, and management within the public sector. Local Economic Development - Building capacity in urban and rural communities, and linking business and local government resources to alleviate poverty.
