Third Research Call

The third DFID-ESRC Growth Research Programme call for research has closed and the grant awarded to a consortium of research organisations led by University of Birmingham business school. Their project Delivering inclusive financial development and growth aims to identify workable policies to help make the financial sector an effective instrument in promoting financial inclusion and sustained growth in low-income countries such as Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Rwanda, Uganda, and Zambia, and consequently create an enabling environment for transitioning these countries to middle-income status.
