National Policy Fora on Infrastructure Policy to Foster Growth and Development of Micro and Small Enterprises in Kenya (March 12 1998)

The primary objective of the Workshop was to discuss the policy research recommendations with respect to improving access to physical infrastructure, including land, workspace, water, sewerage, roads and energy as they impact on the economic activities of MSEs in Kenya. The aim of the fora was provide an opportunity for various stakeholders from the public and private sectors to debate on the adequacy of the research findings and recommendations; and give feedback to the researchers so as to improve on the set policies that may be considered by Government of Kenya for implementation.

Ghana’s Structural Adjustment Experience, Country Study by Clark Leith

The book undertakes an analysis of how a structural adjustment program should be evaluated. Although Ghana’s early post independence economic policies of import substitution and an overvalued exchange rate caused an economic catastrophe, it examined how the Economic Recovery Program adopted in 1983 halted deterioration and allowed moderate growth to resume. It noted, however, that there is no rewriting history: the damage done to Ghana’s economy by the initial policies has left a legacy of stunted economic health. The question confronted is how to distinguish the successes of structural adjustment from the ill effects of the past.

Brainstorming Workshop to Develop African Based Policy Research Agenda for Accelerated Development - ARAADA (March 24-26 1997)

The main objective of the workshop was to identify comparative studies, sub-regional issues and sub-Saharan development constraints that merit cooperative and joint multi-institute research, a focus which required sound policy research and strong linkages with governments. The workshop sought to identify a research agenda for accelerating African economic development by ensuring that indigenous policy research institutes in sub-Saharan Africa debate current and prospective economic and social problems facing sub-Saharan Africa focusing on problems common to many of the countries in the region and how these problems could be better addressed through the sharing of research results and the construction of comparative research projects. The immediate specific objective was to marshal the intellectual resources of Sub-Saharan Africa and to focus them upon the task of developing an African research agenda for accelerating development in Sub-Saharan Africa (ARAADA).
