Annual Report 2015-2016

2015 marked a significant ramp up in the International Growth Centre’s efforts to generate new and collaborative ideas with the aim of reducing poverty and powering growth in our partner countries.

Recognising that effective policy comes from researchers and policymakers working together, we have renewed our focus on cultivating an integrated research agenda and deepening in-country relationships to accelerate policy impact.

In 2015–16 our research projects influenced policymaking in areas such as infrastructure delivery (Ghana), power supply (India-Bihar), special economic zones (Myanmar), affordable housing (Rwanda), elections (Sierra Leone), monetary policy (South Sudan), and women’s economic empowerment (Pakistan).
