Integra is providing analytical services to the QED Group LLC and to the Nigerien government in support of a Policy Constraints Analysis study of Niger. The analysis is a necessary part of Niger’s application for a Threshold Program with the United States Millenium Challenge Corporation (MCC), and Integra consultants are ensuring it is carried out according to the appropriate methodology.
Integra’s Constraints Analysis experts are working with QED and MCA-Niger to identify the “binding constraints” to economic growth in Niger. After identifying these binding constraints, the Policy Constraints Analysis study will then diagnose weaknesses in the economic and institutional environments that underlie them. The outcomes will then serve as priority areas of intervention for a future Threshold Program in the country.
