Through our training and mentorship program, international experts help local researchers strengthen their expertise in advanced methodologies while developing a comprehensive skillset for policy analysis and outreach.

PEP projects inform policymaking and lead to increased visibility and career advancement for local researchers. We support teams to promote evidence use within local institutions and through public engagement via national events and the media.
