Ongoing Research Projects

IPAR-Rwanda was commissioned by the Ministry of Finance and Economic Planning to conduct the Public Expenditure Tracking Surveys (PETS). The surveys cover areas of Agriculture, Environment and Nutrition at the local government level. They track the flow of public funds from the central government to the local administrative entities in the three areas.



IPAR-Rwanda is the leading independent, not-for-profit research and policy analysis Think Tank in Rwanda. It became fully functional in 2008 with the support of the African Capacity Building Foundation (ACBF) and the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) with initial start up support from the Government of Rwanda. We conduct research in a wide range of areas but our focus areas include : Agriculture, Rural Development and Settlements, Social Development, Governance, Economic Growth and Transformation, Environment and Natural Resources Management.
