As part of the Vice Presidency for Policy and Partnerships at the EBRD, the Economics, Policy and Governance Department (EPG) defines and maximises the Bank’s work on transition impact through operations and policy engagement. It also provides political assessments according to the Bank’s mandate.
It provides economic, political and political economy analysis and supports high-level dialogue with shareholder governments. EPG leads on the Bank’s policies on gender and economic inclusion, leads work on governance and business environment and serves as the Bank’s knowledge hub.
In collaboration with the Office of the Chief Economist (OCE), EPG also contributes to the operational, policy and strategy work of the Bank, as well as key reports and economic forecasts.
The EPG also manages the Focus Piece series which offers analysis of economic, political economy and developmental issues across the EBRD’s regions.
