Institutional, Economic and Social Development

Since 1996, Eptisa has had a branch specializing in development cooperation, bringing together knowledge from different sectors with specific methodologies

The following sectors are our fields of activity:

  1. Economic Development
  2. Public Finance Management & Budget Support
  3. Governability
  4. Social-environmental Sustainability
  5. Quality of Aid

Eptisa's main activities run from technical assistance to international cooperation projects, programmes and policies to the performance of studies and workshops related to training issues.

The main geographical zones where this activity is carried out are Latin America, the Mediterranean and the sub-Saharan countries.

The international issues play a vital role for us because of the different levels of development, cultures and prospective evolution. Eptisa knows that is not always easy to export the national experience and using particular approaches while facing other realities is required.

In Eptisa, we put effort into generating the specific culture of regionally differentiated "development" allowing us to implement better adapted strategies, which in practice means a specific philosophy of action.

Eptisa now provides technical assistance to projects and programmes in all geographic areas, has carried out more than forty interventions, has an average of 20 experts outdoors for a long term period, and carries out over 120 specific technical assistance missions a year.

International cooperation continually undergoes changes in both conceptual and instrumental terms. Faced with this reality, Eptisa tries to provide an up-to-date and in some cases innovative response to the new challenges posed by the international scenario.

Eptisa is now a point of reference in multilateral fund management and works with the main international development agencies
