Background of the Project

Established in 2007, Precise Consult International is a premiere consultancy firm specializing in finance, investment, business intelligence, designing and implementation of private sector development programs and projects.

The policy innovation project aims at helping unlock critical problems/gaps at policy level in the Agriculture, Finance and Health sectors to stimulate economic and social growth, by increasing the role of the private sector in a participatory policy making processes. In our context, “policy innovation” is a term coined to describe how the policy making process would not follow the traditional top down exercise. It would rather involve a series of studies and consultations, inputs from crucial stakeholders, several roundtable meetings & dialogues, refinement workshops and validations of findings; before the final product/policy recommendations are released. In addition, the entire efforts would pay more attention to new ideas (not necessarily new to the globe but to our context), that can add greater values with reasonable cost and significant impact that can help transform the current ecological and social environment.
