The primary objectives of ESRF are to strengthen capabilities in policy analysis and development management and enhance the understanding of policy options in the government, public sector, civil society, donor community, and the growing private sector. Moreover, ESRF has put in place qualified professional staff, modest resources, and a favorable research environment for the analysis and discussion of economic and social policies.
