Institutional Support : Institute of Statistical, Social and Economic Research (ISSER)

The Institute of Statistical, Social and Economic Research (ISSER) established in 1969 is a semi-autonomous university-based research centre located at the University of Ghana, Legon, Accra. ISSER has a strong track record of undertaking high-quality policy-relevant research. This grant - the largest being awarded under IDRC's Think Tank Initiative (TTI) - will enable ISSER to upgrade its facilities (resource centre, office building, equipment, computers), recruit new staff, provide training and incentives to existing staff, set organizational goals, and establish a monitoring and evaluation system. It is expected that the grant will allow ISSER to emerge as a true centre of excellence for social and economic policy research on Ghana and the region in general.
