Summary of the project

The Capacity building for policy and programming (POLYGRAM) project was born out of the observed gulf among researchers, policy makers and programme managers and the increasing availability of national data sets.  The program aims at raising the capacities of researchers, policy and program managers to engage more effectively and achieve evidence based policy and program decision-making. The project has three interrelated activities:

1. POLYGRAM Working Paper Series;

2. POLYGRAM Short Training Courses;

3. POLYGRAM Skills transfer and

4. POLYGRAM Opinion Polls
