Given the unique islands’ information database available to it, Island Analysis can carry out a range of island research and benchmarking projects. Areas of specific interest to potential clients include:
One of the key findings of recent research work undertaken by Island Analysis is the shortage of on-island resources that can focus on strategic planning. As the Company has in-depth experience of how islands function, it is able to offer the necessary support services in this critical area of planning particularly in the current global economic climate.
Economic, Social and Environmental Impact
Islands worldwide are facing enormous challenges in the future and, therefore, there is a clear need to ensure that island economic, social and environmental strategies are balanced and sustainable. The unique island database of information enables Island Analysis to develop cost-effective impact assessments for island-based organisations whether in the public or private sector.
If an organisation is deciding whether or not to proceed with an investment project in an island, bespoke feasibility studies on that island's economic, social and environmental status can be carried out by Island Analysis. As part of this work, the Company would take account of island strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats as well as making objective best practice comparisons with other similar islands.
Island Analysis has developed a method which applies the principles of performance benchmarking for islands worldwide. The company is the only organisation globally providing such a service which is aimed at establishing a world class ‘islands knowledge hub’ and which compares and contrasts islands sustainability whilst identifying best practice.
The model above outlines the interaction between economic, social and environmental dimensions which impact on island issues. These ‘forces’ together with changes in governance, whether local or global, affect the quality of life of island communities. Wherever possible, best practice is identified within each of the main sections.
