Policy Practice Projects
We support positive change across low- and middle-income countries. We undertake political economy analysis, strategic and policy work, and operational research. We lead programme designs, reviews, and evaluations. We advise programmes and organisations how to ‘think and work politically’.
We also run a flagship training course on political economy analysis.
In partnership with ODI, the Policy Practice ran two virtual training courses for over 100 FCDO staff on political economy analysis in action.
