Annual Report 2016-2017

2016 saw the IGC achieve a new milestone in policy impact, with a total of 171 projects having a significant influence on policy discussions and decisions, up from 128 cases last year – reflecting the strength of our partnerships with policymakers and the quality and relevance of our research. 

In 2016–17 our research projects influenced policymaking in areas such as urban employment (Ethiopia), low carbon energy access (Rwanda), public sector management practices (Ghana), and women’s economic empowerment (Bangladesh). This year also saw the launch of two new initiatives on state fragility and urbanisation.
