CPPA’s core research areas are governance & political economy, energy & the environment, health, and food & agribusiness. In each area, CPPA aims to strengthen governments’ decision-making, facilitate dialogue between policymakers and their constituencies, and provide a constructive forum for the exchange of ideas between key stakeholders in the policy formulation process.
CPPA generates high-quality qualitative and quantitative research to guide policymakers, civil society actors, and multi-lateral agencies/donors who seek to improve existing policies and/or implement new programmes to strengthen governance structures.
CPPA’s energy policy research emphasizes balance between investment/commercial interests and environmental sustainability. We explore synergies in new energy technologies and contextualize emerging policies within both local and global markets.
CPPA conducts research geared towards providing policymakers with information needed to transform medical institutions/processes and improve health outcomes.
CPPA aims to provide governments, institutions, and businesses with the data required to plan for the required rise in food production necessary to feed Africa’s growing population.
