About the Consortium for Development Policy Research (CDPR)

CDPR is an association of independent researchers/policy advisors based in Pakistan. It aims to consolidate resources and promote cutting-edge research to stimulate evidence-based debate on key policy issues. Its participating organizations include the Center for Economic Research Pakistan (CERP) and the Institute of Development and Economic Alternatives (IDEAS). CDPR receives financial support from the IGC, which is based at the London School of Economics and Political Science in partnership with the University of Oxford and is funded by the UK Department for International Development (DFID). The Consortium’s policy advocacy is carried out via engagement with policymakers, media and other stakeholders using multiple avenues such as workshops, dialogues, seminars, web based materials and regularly published high-quality policy briefs. CDPR is also building capacity as a reservoir of research materials (reports, papers, books, data) on key policy areas relevant to Pakistan available on the website.
