Theory of change and its relation to education systems

CSEA's goal is to bridge the gap caused by the paucity of rigorous empirical research that affects the quality of policies implemented in African countries. CSEA aims to disseminate best practices for African governments to improve their public financial management systems. CSEA conducts research and presents policy options to improve macroeconomic stability, fiscal transparency, and accountability. The Centre also argues for reducing leakages of public funds and the improvement of government social programs and public services. CSEA also works to build capacity for economic growth and reducing poverty on the African continent.
