IGC Kenya combines policy engagement with world-class research focused on firm productivity, functioning cities, accessible energy, state effectiveness, and ICT to improve resource allocation.



IGC Kenya was launched in March 2017 following consultations with key government and non-government stakeholders. The programme engages with key government stakeholders primarily in the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Cooperatives.

IGC Kenya has funded several projects on topics including the impact of interest rate caps, constraints to entrepreneurship in Africa, agricultural trade, social and economic impacts of electrification, microenterprise development, and the impact of ethnic favouritism on service delivery.

Anand Rajaram, Country Director for IGC Zambia, serves as senior advisor for the programme, with Sarah Logan, Policy Economist, supporting the programme from London.
