Research and policy analysis are key to sound policies. Public policies that are built on evidence will be efficacious and sustainable. Cognisant that absence of relevant and reliable data hampers research and policy analysis, IPPAM generates and warehouses data that enable her to do research and offer policy advice to the public and private sectors and civil society.
IPPAM partners with policy entrepreneurs, policymakers and networks around the world to foster the generation, sharing and utilization of knowledge for social well-being. The institute provides a resource base for researchers, scholars and practitioners seeking data / information in the area of its activity.
IPPAM promotes policy dialogue as a means to engendering egalitarian policies that are widely accepted and owned, and which address the real needs of the society. These discourses are encouraged for both the demand and supply sides of policy.
IPPAM offers consultancy, advisory services and human resource development to build the capacity of institutions for effective public policy making and delivery.
