Members are either local or foreign researchers. They need to have minimum qualification of Masters in economics and related fields and at least have (or) are in the process to publish a research paper.
Institutional Membership is open to all public and private institutions in the economic sector that intend to build the capacity of their staff and members, to do research, to use statistical software, to conduct economic policy analysis and other skills and knowledge relevant to economic development. Through partnerships, institutions also benefit from having access to data and other information from other institutions in the network.
