Summary The main goal of PEP is to strengthen the ability of developing country governments to implement sound and fair economic policies. PEP has 300+ projects across 60+ countries. At PEP, 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. Our vision is a world in which every country has the local evidence and expertise it needs to make decisions about its own future. Our mission is to promote Southern-driven development where policy decisions are informed by high-quality, locally-generated evidence. To achieve this, we: Support the work of local researchers in developing countries, while strengthening their capacity and promoting their findings worldwide; Facilitate engagement and collaborative working between researchers and policymakers at the national level; and Bring together researchers from across the globe, creating a space for learning, knowledge-sharing and discussion.
