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.
