The Sustainable Think Tank project was supported by TTI and Implemented by ISET-Nepal and CSTEP Banglore, India. ISET-Nepal took the lead in coordinating and communicating with Think Tanks in Bangladesh, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and India in publishing the book “Strengthening Policy Research: The Role of Think Tank Initiative in South Asia” and CSTEP took the lead in preparing podcast, documentary and talking head videos.
The book, podcast, and the videos capture and document the transformative role that TTI has played to help theirs over the past 7-8 years of the organizational support. It captures the stories of organizational change in the lives of think tanks and their directors. These products is expected to inform policy-makers and other think tanks to demonstrate the value of core support in strengthening think tank. It is also expected to demonstrate how stronger and more sustainable policy research organizations can increase the likelihood of improved research uptake and better evidence-informed public policy to address national and sub-national challenges, and equally to enable country governments to achieve the sustainable development goals (SDGs) towards a world where no one is left behind.
