Economic Policy Analysis and Management
IPAR is an independent public policy research center established in 1994 with a mandate to provide independent economic and social policy options in a challenging political environment. The third phase of IPAR sought to enable the Institute to consolidate its strategy for playing a more active role in the identification of structural challenges and implementation bottlenecks to ongoing policy reforms in Kenya as well as create the condition for reorienting its strategy for financial sustainability while maintaining its independent status.Project Description:
The Project goal was to strengthen IPAR as a center of excellence in policy analysis, research and capacity building, offering constructive policy support and information to the government, private sector, civil society and development partners in order to improve the welfare of Kenyans. Its expected results were to: i) consolidate the capacity of IPAR to implement its research program; ii) expand its participation in policy formation through dissemination of policy findings and promotion of policy dialogue on current and emerging development challenges; iii) to build capacity of the government’s and non-governmental organizations to absorb and analyze public policy; and iv) support the consolidation of its institutional capacity through partial funding of its operating and capital costs.
