Research on the Poverty Impact of Market and Enabling Business Environment Programmes in Kenya

This project reviews the existing evidence base and plans for gathering evidence to understand the extent to which DFID's private sector programmes in Kenya contribute to poverty reduction and other development impacts.

This includes a review of theories of change and assessment of the strength of linkages and assumptions, as well as an analysis of the methods and data collection approaches which are being used. This will lead to the identification of the gaps in the evidence base and recommendations for evaluation and research work to address these gaps.
