Exploring Trade between Kenya and Canada

While the absence of bilateral trade agreements between Kenya and Canada hinders trade between the two countries, there are several other barriers contributing to the problem. As part of PDIA in Action course, John Diing, Mayra Hoyos, students at the Harvard Kennedy School, Bishal Belbase, student at the Harvard School of Public Health, and Stephanie Shalkoski, student at the Harvard Business School, worked with Dr. George Imbenzi, the Honorary Consul General of Kenya to Canada to better understand the problem and help identify entry points for action. Together they learned to think outside the box, harness their creativity and flexibility, crawl the design space, and focus efforts on manageable steps to make forward progress.
