PEP has undertaken numerous programs to strengthen and mobilize local research capacity in developing countries, particularly in the most fragile and low-capacity contexts. These programs produce high-quality, reliable evidence for strategic and pro-poor development.
Numerous international donors have supported PEP’s capacity building programs for local development solutions. They include: AusAID (now Australia's DFAT), CIDA (now Global Affairs Canada), FAO, IADB, IFPRI, ILO, NWO-Wotro, UNDP, UNICEF, UN Women and World Bank Group.
CBMS special initiatives
|Through PEP, the CBMS network (based in the Philippines) has also launched several intiatives to tackle a variety of welfare and development issues - such as gender, impact of shocks, adaptation to climate change, community development, etc. - using "community-based monitoring systems".|
