SERA - which is Swahili for 'policy' - is a consulting firm based in the USA and Europe, combining 60 years of experience of its principals from work with the World Bank and the EU.
SERA's principals have a strong reputation based on assignments undertaken for governments, international finance institutions and donor agencies on three continents, but primarily focused on Africa - as the name implies.
