    CSIS hosts a discussion of the AERC’s work to build a cadre of African researchers that will help guide African policymakers in economic planning and management. Now in its 25th year, the AERC’s mission is to strengthen local capacity for independent, rigorous inquiry into problems facing African economies. Based in Nairobi, the consortium is ranked among Africa’s top think tanks. Panelists discuss the importance and the challenge of cultivating and retaining an in-country class of professional economists and generating a body of empirical evidence that fosters and supports evidence-based policymaking in the economic arena.
