What we do 

 

CPAN works across several cross-cutting themes under the umbrella of the Leave No One Behind (LNOB) principle and is committed to the realization of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

Our projects are aimed at creating high-quality evidence-based research, providing policy advice and driving policy-focused dissemination at the national and international levels. 

In addition to the research developed in the framework of its project, CPAN produces a wide series of publications, reports, working papers and policy briefs. Have a look at our Resource page to learn more.
