Economic Growth

Tetra Tech’s economic growth specialists work to improve the quality of life for people living in extreme poverty by reducing systemic constraints that limit access to markets.

Tetra Tech’s economic growth work combines local knowledge with international expertise to design and deliver programs that help partner countries mobilize their own resources, explore opportunities to grow their economies, and strengthen their workforces. We work with our clients to drive solutions that use markets as an engine for poverty reduction, helping our clients grow on a global stage and develop into mature, integrated economies.

Market Systems Development

Our market systems development approach to programming aims to diagnose why those under the poverty line are not benefiting from markets, address the systemic constraints preventing their engagement, and remove bottlenecks to their active participation. We provide government agencies with management and administrative support to streamline processes and improve oversight for large-scale infrastructure projects that create a business-enabling environment.
