Study on 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. The three-year project, which is funded by IDRC, is being managed by CAPEC on behalf of the three countries.

Apart from the launch of the project, KIPPRA has also held a stakeholder workshop.
