Government in transformation

Policy-makers are operating in a rapidly-changing world. Shifting demographics, urbanization and climate change are just a few of the long-term and systemic trends reshaping 21st century government.

And with finances tight, growth stalling and unemployment high, the legacy of the financial crisis continues to play out across borders.

Our Government & Public Sector practice aims to be the preferred partner in driving transformational change for governments around the world. In countries large and small, developed and emerging, we understand the issues and can provide you services that will have lasting impact.

  • Future cities

    Cities are complex ecosystems of people, business and buildings, and infrastructure binds them together. Understanding the elements that make up a smart and resilient city is key in helping governments shape their priorities and investments. Successful cities consider both the physical and social elements of a city system, and how these co-exist and interact.

    EY’s future cities approach combines experience from multiple industries and disciplines and is built around four driving principles of resilience, citizens, collaboration and technology.
