Policy brief writeshop for researchers: An approach to promote greater science-policy interfacing in South Asia

South Asia is one of the least experienced regions for research and development in the world. Penchant of younger generation’s towards research has now been slightly increasing; but, the research does have very negligible policy impact. The researchers are not being able to express their findings in a way policy makers are looking for.

This project intends to fill this gap between science and policy by building capacity. Four-day intensive training by policy research experts and policy practitioners, and writing fellowship to them to published peer-reviewed journal on policy science interface will be career milestones for the young researchers. Hence, the project aims to achieve: Capacity-building of young researchers from south Asia to write policy briefs from their research outcomes; and publication of a peer-reviewed journal on policy-science interface in the field of global change research in South Asia and its continuation as a project outcomes.
