Giulia Stecchi

Founding Partner

Main Policy Areas: Private sector development, taxation and customs, public health

During her 10 years of professional experience, Giulia has been involved in around 20 assignments related mostly to monitoring and evaluation. She has worked mainly on projects in low- and middle-income countries – particularly in Sub-Saharan Africa, Eastern Europe and Central Asia – for international organizations, government bodies and private clients. Over the years, she has contributed to or managed the assessment of development partners’ support in a variety of sectors and themes, including business environment reforms, rural and agricultural development, access to finance, investment support, SME development, infrastructural progress, and civil society strengthening. More recently, she has also carried out several evaluations and impact assessments for EU institutions, focusing on the areas of public health, SME financing, taxation, and customs.

Giulia puts her passion for planners to good use when designing, implementing and overseeing data collection and analysis within complex assignments. She has had prime responsibility for the design and roll-out of small- and large- scale surveys, coordinating and quality-checking data entry during fieldwork. She has also implemented and supervised in-depth consultation programs, relying on various types of stakeholder engagement (ranging from interviews with high-ranking government officials to enterprise visits and focus group discussions with farmers). Giulia combines her experience in collecting primary evidence with the hands-on involvement in gathering and reviewing secondary data, such as the analysis of large project portfolios and the review of scientific and gray literature. Her quantitative background also allows her to understand and integrate econometric approaches and inputs.

Giulia has an International Master in Development, Innovation and Change from the University of Bologna (Italy) and the University of Cape Town (South Africa), a MSc in Development Economics from the University of Florence (Italy), as well as a Bachelor’s degree in International Development and Cooperation from the University of Bologna (Italy).
