NESG Research publishes economic reports, insightful policy briefs, sector-specific reports and research papers to support evidence-based policy making and advocacy. Our reports provide in-depth analysis of key happenings in the global and domestic landscape, and examine their impacts on different segments of the Nigerian economy.

Outputs of NESG research are used to champion policy making and review, by influencing the direction of economic and social policies towards sustainable growth and development of a modern globally competitive Nigerian economy.


To ensure credibility in our research output, we adopt a robust macroeconomic model (NESG MACMOD) to conduct policy simulations to determine the future consequences of current policy actions on several aspects of the economy. Policy simulation is also useful to gauge to impact of several policy alternatives on broad economic aggregates such as GDP, Unemployment, Inflation, External Reserves and on the performance of key sectors of the economy. The use of economic modelling aids evidence-based advocacy and strengthens the work of the NESG.

In addition, NESG Research collaborates with reputable organizations to enhance capacity and maximize policy impact, leveraging on the breadth of perspectives of the NESG and the partner Institution on issues that are critical to the development of the Nigerian economy. In addition to institutional research collaboration, NESG Research explores institutional research grant and funding opportunities.


Our periodic reports provide analysis on topical social-economic issues on the Nigerian economy on an on-going basis. Our reports leverage on the vast expert network of NESG to deliver unparalleled insight that shapes the direction of Nigeria’s socio-economic policies.


The research department drives research collaboration with reputable private and public institutions. The central motivation for this partnership has been to enhance capacity, leverage the breadth of perspectives in working together in crosscutting issues that are critical to the NESG focus areas and maximize policy impact.
