Insights into urban and regional development

Understand the consequences of global, national and local events on cities and regional economies.

Local economic audits and forecasts

A core capability of our team is the production of local economic audits and forecasts. These are tailored to clients’ specific needs, but typically include demographic trends and how the economy has influenced them, labour market conditions, business statistics, productivity, wages, output and employment by sector, house prices, incomes and spending—all within the context of a macro overview highlighting global economic drivers.

Local economic planning

Our projections for employment, population and household formation are widely adopted by local planners. Because of the rigourous nature of our work we can help local and regional governments make robust and defensible decisions on issues such as future land use, transport and development priorities.

Strategic analysis

As the leading practitioners in thinking about prospects and drivers of change for local, regional and city economies, we are increasingly asked to lead on strategy development.

Key Themes for Cities in 2024

Growth in the main economic indicators (GDP, employment, and consumer spending) is likely to be weaker in 2024 than in 2023 for most cities around the world. Other, more structural factors, including migration and demographics, will also attract attention in 2024, as they help or hinder growth across different cities.
