This is a short introduction to planning and getting started with Applied Political Economy Analysis (APEA). This video will provide some basic information for how you plan and begin implementing an APEA study. This is a follow-up to our other video, which explains what APEA is and how it can help a project team. If you’d like to learn more about APEA, Pact has multiple resources available to guide teams. We suggest you start with Pact’s APEA Handbook, which provides a detailed overview of the methodology with examples from around the globe and guidance for designing and executing APEA studies.
