IGC Rwanda provides demand-led, frontier research to support sustainable and inclusive growth in Rwanda. Our work focuses around four areas: agriculture; infrastructure; macroeconomic policy and finance; and trade and industry.

The IGC began operations in Rwanda in November 2010 at the request of President Paul Kagame. We operate under a Memorandum of Understanding with the Ministry of Finance and Economic Planning (MINECOFIN), which requests that we, “produce demand-driven research outputs that strengthen the evidence base for policy-making relevant to Rwanda’s long-run growth”, with a focus on research and analysis under four main thematic areas: agriculture, infrastructure, macroeconomic policy and finance, and trade and industry.

The IGC in Rwanda has fostered close working relationships with MINECOFIN, the Office of the Presidency’s Strategy and Policy Unit, the National Bank of Rwanda, the Ministry of Infrastructure, Rwanda Revenue Authority, Rwanda Natural Resources Authority, and the Rwanda Education Board, amongst many other government partners. Through these close working relationships with the government, our researchers have been able to produce effective, evidence-based, and demand-led advice to policymakers, from ‘rapid response’ analyses of urgent policy questions, to multi-year nationwide surveys and experimental studies.

Our Rwanda Country Strategy Note is available here (updated February 2021).
