From how introducing a minimum wage can improve well-being to why youth become entrepreneurs, PEP has published a series of articles comparing key findings from multiple projects focused on similar themes but from different countries and regions. The findings come from the first phase of PEP's Policy Analysis on Growth and Employment initiative (PAGE 2012-2016).

PAGE supported 274 local developing country researchers to carry out 65 projects in 34 countries (45% low-income, fragile or conflict states). Projects investigated local economic policy questions relating to global priority issues, in direct consultation or collaboration with policymakers and other stakeholders. Findings from 1 in 3 projects have already been taken up to inform relevant policy processes.

The high level of success and considerable impact of the initiative led to both donors providing support for a new series of projects between 2016 and 2020: PAGE II.
