Our impact

PEP's unique research support program facilitates collaboration between local researchers and stakeholders to produce contextualized, policy-relevant evidence. We foster best practices in policy engagement and communication to increase evidence use. We also support research teams to promote evidence use within local institutions and through public engagement via national events and the media.

As a result, most PEP projects inform policymaking and/or lead to increased visibility and career advancement for local researchers. The statistics below relate the impact of 60 projects supported by PEP between 2016 and 2021. This information is collected through our sophisticated monitoring and evaluation system, embedded into all projects and initiatives.


Below are links to annual or periodic series of impact stories reported by PEP project teams supported since 2013.

  • N.B. See also PEP national policy conferences to find out more about the dissemination of PEP findings in beneficiary countries, including national media coverage.
