OUR FOCUS

Development
Policy

People centred. Innovative. Knowledge driven.

We are aiming to strengthen policy work on development issues in Pakistan. Our Development policies are designed after thorough policy research and provide evidence based policy advice to the national counterparts and facilitate solutions exchange and dialogues, including campaigns on key development challenges. This will also include support on SDGs and the post 2015 development agenda.

Our development policies are working under three focus areas:

  1. Policy research and advisory; 
  2. SDGs and other development goals;
  3.  Solutions/knowledge exchange

The goal is to substantially impact public policy in addressing poverty, inequality and other key constraints to human development in Pakistan.
