Given rapidly changing global conditions, what future resources should be committed to providing an essential service, a key infrastructure project, or to developing a profitable business?
To meet these challenges, we offer bespoke research and advisory services either on a retained or one-off basis to island-based public, private and third sector organisations. The sourcing and analysis of primary data and information and drawing upon relevant best practice are paramount to the successful delivery of these services.
In addition, two important initiatives on which we are currently focusing are set out below:
Islestat Review Series
An increasing number of external and internal challenges now impact on island communities worldwide. These range from geopolitical tensions and world trade concerns to demographic age drift, infrastructure funding, labour shortages, and climate change.
To monitor these challenges and their impact on the resilience of island communities, we have launched the ISLESTAT Island Review Series.
The Reviews are designed to identify the opportunities as well as the risks in strategic and operational decision-making. This will enable clients to achieve a more targeted approach in a range of areas such as business development, service delivery, human resource allocation, marketing, and overall efficiency.

Vision CI is an initiative we launched in 2022 to identify the real benefits of a greater integration of services and resources on a pan-Channel Islands' basis.
Following a series of successful presentations on the concept, we released a Case Study to widen constructive debate between interested parties and to test the evidence already gathered.
The CI are increasingly vulnerable and the adoption of 'economies of scale' policies could be the most appropriate course of action to take in meeting ever-greater external and internal pressures. Therefore, our objective is now to take the initiative forward by showing that a pan-CI approach will achieve more efficient and effective services in the medium to long-term and limit as well as reduce public expenditure across all of the islands.
