Study of Kigali’s (Rwanda) informal economy and action plan to improve the business environment and resilience for informal operators
Conduct a study of Kigali’s informal economy and develop an action plan to improve the business environment and resilience for informal operators
The ICR Facility supports the City of Kigali in conducting a study to understand the current state of affairs of the informal sector and based on that, develop an action plan to improve the resilience of the sector. The study provides a diagnostic of the informal sector economy, the challenges they face and the linkages to the wider local economy. It was designed to be participatory and therefore proposes well-informed and innovative strategies to support workers in the informal sector, especially in the context of the current Covid-19 crisis.
An evidence-based understanding of the current state of the informal sector post-covid and resilience building solutions for informal sector workers and businesses are provided, this includes a focus on women, youth and other underrepresented groups.
