Launched in 2015, the Local Development Research Institute(LDRI) is a private not-for-profit think-tank organization, supporting efforts by African governments to take practical, evidence-informed actions to end hunger, extreme poverty and reduce inequality. Since 2015 we have worked with county governments in Kenya, ministries, departments and agencies in Sierra Leone and Nigeria to advance open government and better data for decision making.
Who We Are
Our commitment is rooted in the drive to tackle poverty, hunger, and inequality in Africa. We firmly believe that the realization of these crucial objectives depends on providing timely, data-driven insights to those capable of making informed decisions.
Our dedicated team is dedicated to embarking on this transformative journey in collaboration with our esteemed partners. Together, we work towards the shared vision of the Africa we aspire to build.
How We Work
Our work is organized in three practice areas: Transparency, Accountability & Good Governance Practice, Artificial Intelligence & Emerging Technologies and Food Security & Health. Read more (Insert link here for practice area page)
All our practices seek to influence public policy in favor of an improved enabling environment, strengthening human capital development and mobilizing domestic financing for better development outcomes.
We are grateful for the collaboration and support of our partners over the years who have helped us bring our vision to life.
