How We Work

  • Advocacy and Networking

    Establish networks and disseminate policy recommendations and good practices to policymakers, opinion leaders and civil society. 

  • Capacity Development

    Develop capacity of governments and civil society for introduction and implementation of policy recommendations and good practices.

  • Policy Advice

    Synthesize research findings from across the region (and beyond) and translate them into policy recommendations.
