The ICGLR LMRC Research Reports Series present results of operational researches and policy analysis carried out by the LMRC to inform the policy making processes and ensure sharing of experiences and best practice among stakeholders in the Great Lakes Region. This is part of its mandate as a scientific and technical organ of the International Conference on the Great Lakes Region (ICGLR). The studies are conducted using participatory approaches, through collaboration with researchers and policy institutes based in Member States as well as organisation of regional validation workshops to discuss research finds before their publication. Thus the LMRC contributes to the dialogue on complex issues of governance, public and development policies and facilitates identification of relevant policy recommendations to address existing challenges.

The following LMRC Research Reports have been published:
