Jacobs & Associates Cordova developed and conducted a 7 day-training on ex-ante regulatory impact assessment (RIA). The course focused on the general methodology for conducting RIA and provided practical guidance through examples and case studies on how to perform impact analysis. Participants in the training were about 30 public servants from various regulatory agencies of the central government of Ecuador. Overall, participants were very satisfied with the training received, both from the point of view of the approach and methodology and the content of the training. Trainers were also evaluated positively, and most participants rated the training as very useful to carry out their current functions.
