Institutional Support: Centre for Economic and Social Research, Education and Documentation (Burkina Faso)

The Centre d'études de documentation et de recherches économiques et sociales (CEDRES) established in 1977 is an autonomous university-based research centre located in Ougadougou, Burkina Faso. The centre lacks sufficient resources to fulfil its mandate. This grant from IDRC's Think Tank Initiative (TTI) will enable CEDRES to recruit staff (including a senior researcher with resource mobilization experience), finalize a strategic plan, compile a procedures manual, convene regular meetings of the governing board, purchase office equipment (including computers), conduct research and publish the results, and put in place a system to monitor progress toward its goals.
