Institutional Support : Centre for the Study of the Economies of Africa (CSEA)

The Centre for the Study of the Economies of Africa (CSEA), based in Abuja, Nigeria, is a young independent nonprofit research centre that was established in October 2007. CSEA has a dynamic and motivated team but lacks the financial resources to meet its goals and objectives. This grant from IDRC's Think Tank Initiative (TTI) will allow CSEA to recruit and retain staff, upgrade its information infrastructure, finalize its strategic plan, elaborate a research program, and apply a rigorous monitoring and evaluation system to assess progress made toward its goals.
