Factors such as employment, wealth, education, equality and health are frequently impacted by changes in the sectors CEPA operates and our expert economists are adept at measuring the direct and indirect costs of options so that informed decisions can be made and proposals adapted where this is likely to provided better outcomes.
Our work in this area has included the identification and assessment of the social impacts as a result of:
- the transition to renewable energy;
- transport infrastructure investment in new runways, rail networks and road improvements;
- the protection of vulnerable households that may suffer from water or energy poverty; and
- the prevention of the spread of communicable diseases.
