IGC operates in Kenya through the Responsive Policy Function. The programme engages with key government stakeholders primarily in the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Cooperatives.

IGC 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.

IGC Policy Economist Joevas Asare supports this programme from London.
