Local evidence for local solutions

The Partnership for Economic Policy (PEP) is a Southern-led global organization dedicated to supporting development in the Global South. We do this by providing high-quality, locally-generated evidence that informs better decisions in policy and practice.

We believe that evidence produced from an in-country perspective, by empowered and engaged local researchers, results in: better policy choices, more sustainable development outcomes, and more inclusive policy debates.

Find out more about us, our vision, mission and approach, as well as how we are promoting local leadership in development economics.
