Research Grant Projects

This project expands a previous intervention that implemented a fleet management system in Kenya’s semi-formal public transport system along three margins: possible negative effects of the tracking system, role of cash incentives in enhancing safety and increasing duration and participation to the pilot.
This project will provide monitoring technology to SMEs in a randomized controlled trial to improve their ability to write effective contracts with their employees.
