The Business Environment for Economic Development

DAI Europe

DFID country offices have a mature portfolio of business environment reform programmes that are delivering strong results – making it easier for firms to set up, grow and create jobs. But this portfolio is expected to expand as part of DFID’s scale-up of its Economic Development work – around half of DFID country offices cited the business environment as a barrier in their Inclusive Growth Diagnostics. BERF has been set up to help Country Offices to make this shift and to provide easy access to expert advice to help with programme design, start-up, monitoring and, if necessary, course correction. It will also help DFID learn and disseminate the lessons from its programmes more systematically, carry out policy research to help our understanding of how reforms really work, and develop innovative approaches for involving stakeholders in reform programmes. BERF has a budget of £7.8m and will run until January 2019. BERF offers a menu of services for Country Offices to choose from based on their needs, as set out under the 5 Activities below. These Activities were designed based on feedback from Country Offices on what would be useful and are intended to be as broad as possible. – BERF is funded by DFID’s Investment Climate Team and is being managed by Tim Green, Sim Paton, Carl Aaron and Gillian Mitchell. KPMG is lead contractor of the implementing Consortium consisting of DAI, Itad, Social Development Direct, Law and Development Partnership, Triple Line, McKinsey, The Policy Practice, Restless Development and a range of academic institutions and independent consultants.
