CSEA Projects Update
The Centre for the Study of the Economies of Africa (CSEA) is a non-proﬁt think tank that conducts independent, high quality applied research on economic policy issues in Nigeria and the rest of Africa.
CSEA’s activities are largely financed by grants from the International Development Research Centre (IDRC), Canada, under the TTI (Think Tank Initiative).
The Initiative is dedicated to strengthening the capacity of independent policy research institutions in the developing world. It was launched in 2008 and currently provides 43 think tanks in 20 countries with core, non-earmarked funding.
CSEA is presently a beneficiary of the Phase 2 of the TTI Institutional Grant of CAD 702,682 for the period: 2014-2019. The Centre also benefits from Research grants/Project funding from other Institutions.
