Research & Insights

Implementation of Africa’s development agenda necessitates research that produces actionable insights for policy makers on the continent. LDRI’s approach to policy research has a strong bias towards immediately actionable outputs whose implementation we are committed to support.

In the recent past, we have studied Kenya’s long-term development plan, Vision 2030, and it’s medium term plan as a framework for implementation of the Comprehensive Africa Agriculture Development Program (CAADP), Agenda 2063 and the Sustainable Development Goals.  The next phase of the study shall explore similar frameworks in two more African countries in order understand the interface between international development agendas and the nation state’s development planning and implementation mechanisms.

LDRI’s team has also explored a possible framework for assessing resilience-building programs in Africa as part of on-going research on agricultural resilience. The blog posts can be read here

During the next five years, LDRI will study the implementation of CAADP and how it contributes to ending hunger, poverty and reducing inequality in Africa. We will also be studying the state of data on the continent with specific focus on the capability of member states to plan implementation and track progress of interventions to address the targets of both Agenda 2063 and the SDGs.
