Publications and research

The establishment of a knowledge-based economy is one of the key areas for the development of the world community. The Fund in its activities promotes the dissemination of knowledge in the EFSD member states, primarily through the development of analytical activities. High-quality analytics is an important decision support tool for the Fund, aimed at achieving its main goal.

The use of analytical (research) approaches helps to increase efficiency of the Fund’s operational activities, strategic planning, and technical assistance to member states.

The leading role in the implementation of the analytical function is played by the Chief economist group.

In order to formulate a more comprehensive approach, which includes a deep understanding of the economies of the participating countries, as well as interconnections at the regional level, the economic studies of the Fund are developed using quantitative methods and modern economic models.

The main types of public analytics of the Fund are:

Working papers;

other publications.

The Fund attaches great importance to the development of international partnerships, through the implementation of joint analytical projects.
