Evidence for PFM Policy and Action

The Institute of Public Finance Kenya undertakes research in areas of revenue and taxation, fiscal management, public expenditure, macro-economic policies, citizen participation in the Public Finance system, and other Public Finance and policy issues. Our research work  is based on generation of research evidence in Public Finance Management and service delivery through rigorous analysis, detailed empirical investigations, and in-depth institutional knowledge. We then endeavor to communicate the evidence generated effectively to a wide range of audiences, and to maximize their impact on policy both directly and by informing public debate.
