African researchers residing in Africa or non-African researchers working on African countries collaborate with CDP to implement their research projects. This program aims at promoting and deepening intra-Africa knowledge sharing among researchers and other key policy makers and development actors. It encourages the sharing of the best-practices within African countries- based on grounded evidence. We seek to generate and share knowledge that would impact policy and development programs in African countries. During research fellowships, researchers are facilitated to collect required data and contextualize their studies. CDP arranges policy talks with academia, peer researchers, policy makers and development practioners where research fellows present policy briefs generated from their research findings.
