CPPA’s core research areas are governance & political economy, energy & the environment, health, and food & agribusiness. In each area, CPPA aims to strengthen governments’ decision-making, facilitate dialogue between policymakers and their constituencies, and provide a constructive forum for the exchange of ideas between key stakeholders in the policy formulation process.
CPPA generates high-quality qualitative and quantitative research to guide policymakers, civil society actors, and multi-lateral agencies/donors who seek to improve existing policies and/or implement new programmes to strengthen governance structures.
CPPA’s energy policy research emphasizes balance between investment/commercial interests and environmental sustainability. We explore synergies in new energy technologies and contextualize emerging policies within both local and global markets.
