The program, Mobilizing Local Knowledge to Improve Competitiveness Strategies, aims to mobilize developing country researchers to produce contextualized knowledge on the issue of industrial policies in Africa. Research teams in Côte d’Ivoire, Ethiopia and Ghana will examine the processes through which government and companies interact to improve – or conversely penalize – industrial productivity, and how these approaches impact developing countries.
The research aims to shed light on how policies work, or do not work, so that governments from developing countries are more reliably informed on the issue to determine sustainable policy choices.
The Global Development Network is the chosen partner of the Finance, Competitiveness and Innovation Global Practice of the World Bank Group for this program, which is financed by the Competitive Industries and Innovation Program (CIIP).
