The seminar included four presentations on research in women's mobility, public-private partnerships in education, public procurement and taxation. Researchers were enthusiastic over the fact that academic work on development was being closely paid attention to by key policymakers, including Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif, who was briefed on the research the next day. CDPR explains the four takeaways from the seminar in a blog post for the International Growth Centre.
