Economic Policy Resource Centre (EPRC)

The Economic Policy Resource Centre (EPRC) is an open-access online information exchange system for economic research and policy outputs from Southern Africa, hosted by the Southern African Institute for Policy and Research, located in Lusaka, Zambia. The EPRC is designed to bring together previously disparate resources on economic policy produced both within Africa, as well as internationally. Resources from academic, non-governmental, and governmental institutions are searchable through a state-of-the-art database system, freely available to all researchers and their institutions worldwide.

The Zambian Economic Policy Resources collection currently focuses on secondary economic policy resources from Zambian academic, non-governmental, and governmental institutions created since 2008. Specifically, the collection focuses on macro- and micro-economic policy; the agricultural, mining, and tourism sectors; infrastructure development; and labour markets. These resources are freely available for use by local and international researchers and institutions.

The EPRC project has recently completed its first phase, with an eye towards continued growth in sources and community promotion in the coming months. For more information on the EPRC project, to find out how you can become involved, or to provide feedback on this exciting new initiative, contact the Database Manager, Jessica Achberger : jessica.achberger@saipar.org
