Public service delivery: The focus is on identifying mechanisms of integrating spatial and economic planning with a view to optimizing the outcomes of various developmental processes.

Construction industry performance: Work in this thematic area aims to get a better and more informed understanding of the operations and performance of the construction industry and to propose policy measures and strategic interventions to improve the performance of the industry.

Infrastructure finance: The aim is to identify impediments to private financing of infrastructure services in Kenya; identify innovative, non-traditional options/models for financing infrastructure services; and propose reform initiatives to facilitate private-public initiatives in the delivery and management of infrastructure services.

Urban and regional planning: The aim is to provide an assessment of the extent to which urban and regional planning in Kenya has facilitated the creation of a suitable environment for business, and also promotion of wealth creation efforts.

Transport: The aim is to develop a migration model for urban public transport in Kenya to facilitate the transition from low to high capacity public service vehicles.
