Institutional Support : Ethiopian Economic Association / Ethiopian Economic Policy Research Institute (EEA/EEPRI)

The Ethiopian Economic Policy Research Institute (EEPRI) is the research wing of the Ethiopian Economic Association (EEA). EEA/EEPRI is professionally accomplished and well respected but it faces challenges that it seeks to alleviate with flexible, long-term support from IDRC's Think Tank Initiative (TTI). This grant will enable EEA/EEPRI to cope with the increasing demand for its services by strengthening its in-house research capacity, formulating specific organizational development goals, and adopting a rigorous monitoring system to assess progress made toward those goals. All this will have to be accomplished in the context of a new national law restricting the activity of organizations like EEA/EEPRI.
