Ongoing Research Projects

IPAR-Rwanda signed a collaboration agreement with the University of Aberdeen to conduct a study on Fostering a Social Practice Approach to Adult Literacies for Improving People’s Quality of Life in Western Rwanda. This study is led by IPAR-Rwanda and will be implemented in collaboration with the University of Rwanda, College of Education and three Teacher Training Colleges in Western Rwanda.



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.
