PDP Australia Pty Ltd (PDP) is a leading international economics and governance consultancy based in Sydney, Australia. Since their establishment in 1988, they have worked in a wide range of economic and political settings.
Their approach is to help build better governance institutions and to work collaboratively to strengthen the impact of public policy in order to reduce poverty in emerging market economies.
They work with governments, the private sector, multilateral and bilateral institutions, and community based organisations to help transform institutional performance. They focus on building more efficient, effective and transparent institutions that are able to sustain performance improvements and increased returns to expenditure.
Their work covers:
- transforming public management processes and systems in public financial management, civil service reform, accountability and governance improvement, and law and justice
- providing economic policy solutions in macroeconomic and sectoral applications, trade and economic integration, national development policy and financing, and private sector development
- ensuring social policy and protection solutions are fully integrated into medium-term development and fiscal frameworks
They have built a large team of economists, financial management specialists, lawyers and other sector specialists. Their staff are professionals with established reputations and demonstrable experience in leading the design and implementation of reforms. Members of their team have typically held senior positions in economic, financial management and governance institutions in their own countries and internationally, including with international financial institutions and international donor organisations.
