PEP SPECIAL INITIATIVES
Over the past few years however, PEP has become increasingly active in going beyond its core capacity building activities to support and promote the mobilization of these local researchers and experts in key national and international research initiatives. These special, often large-scale projects – usually focused on emerging development and/or policy issues – are conducted either through joint research initiatives, in collaboration with specific donors and/or as commissioned studies deputed by international institutions calling on PEP’s extensive experience to provide scientific support and coordinate activities.
