As a top African research organisation, the Economic Policy Research Centre contributes significantly to the formulation of national policies and programmes in Uganda.
EPRC understands that its stakeholders, specifically government, private sector, civil society, media and development partners need timely evidence-based research about economic dynamics and their respective drivers to inform policy processes, choices and execution.
Our research agenda is thus aligned to Uganda’s long term development strategies specifically the Vision 2040 and the National Development Plans.
The EPRC research agenda is premised on six thematic areas:
This focuses on means of enhancing productivity, mobility of factors of production & their impacts on household welfare, social protection for vulnerable groups & institutional reforms for social economic transformation.
