KIPPRA Signs Grant Agreement with CAPEC on IDRC’S Project

Titled  ‘Economic Inclusion of Young People and Women through Inclusive Entrepreneurship: Case of Kenya’, the project’s overall objective is to  analyze the contribution of inclusive entrepreneurship to young people and women’s well-being in Cote d’Ivoire, Burkina Faso and Kenya. Findings from this project are expected to provide useful insights for governments to implement incentives and support mechanisms to mainstream the practice of inclusive entrepreneurship while maximizing its impact on vulnerable groups, including women and youth.

Three think tanks, namely: KIPPRA, the Economic Policy Analysis Unit of CIRES (CAPEC) of Cote d’Ivoire, and the Laboratory of Quantitative Analysis Applied to Development – SAHEL (LAQAD-S) in Burkina Faso are involved in the realization of this project. This is a three-year project which will be managed on behalf of the three countries by CAPEC.
