With the Howard G. Buffett Foundation, which will support market data collection, and USAID’s Higher Education Solutions Network, which will focus on analysis, ConDev is conducting a market tracking study around Virunga National Park in the Democratic Republic of the Congo to track the price impacts of rural electrification. An offshoot of this project is a broadcast market news service, which is expected to improve economic stability and reduce conflict.
