This grant from IDRC's Think Tank Initiative (TTI) will enable REPOA to hire additional senior researchers, engage experienced professionals on a short-term basis to mentor young in-house staff, launch a new thematic area on growth and social protection, and support staff training and exchange visits. A monitoring and evaluation system will be set up to ensure that the objectives of the grant are achieved.
