15 changes that shaped Pakistan's development in 2016
2016 was a pivotal year for the world, can we say the same for Pakistan? In a new post for Developing Pakistan, CDPR Communications Associate Shehryar Nabi recaps the key changes of 2016 that have the biggest implications for Pakistan's development path.
At a recent conference six experts offered their takes on key issues affecting Pakistan's economic growth. They touched on topics ranging from firm productivity to strenghtening the research-policy relationship.
In Pakistan, policy decisions and public discourse are often uninformed by available research. The Consortium for Development Policy Research (CDPR) bridges this gap by communicating cutting-edge, evidence-based research on development issues in Pakistan to an audience of policymakers, students, the media and the wider public. With support from the International Growth Centre (IGC), CDPR disseminates policy briefs, hosts events, engages with the media and produces digital content to make topics in development research such as economic growth, energy, education, health and governance intelligible to both decision makers and the public.
