PEP National Policy Conferences

PEP supports developing country research teams as they organize national policy conferences to disseminate their project findings and recommendations. These are key events where PEP researchers directly communicate and discuss their PEP research findings to an audience of policymakers, advisors and other stakeholders, in their home countries.


International Conferences

PEP highlights the significant number of PEP-funded researchers invited to present their work at international conferences. These invitations testify to the acknowledgment of PEP researchers as field specialists by the international development research community. 


PEP Online Training Courses

As well as in-person training during the PEP Annual Conference, PEP provides online training courses on the most up-to-date techniques and tools for economic policy analysis. These programs aim to help local researchers contribute to the design of effective national growth and poverty reduction strategies in their own countries.


Events from the Development Research Community

PEP also publicizes events and opportunities from the development research community that may be of interest to its members, for example, job offers, calls for proposals, international conferences, etc.
