The partnership for evidence and equity in responsive social systems (PEERSS) aims to advance evidence-informed policymaking, primarily in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs), to address social challenges, with a focus on the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
The Partnership for Evidence and Equity in Responsive Social Systems (PEERSS) recently released its third newsletter to highlight the exciting work that partners are doing to advance evidence-informed policymaking (EIP) in their countries.
Over the last two centuries, colonial occupation in Myanmar has created a political economy based on racial segregation, foreign labour, markets dominated by foreign capital, and the export of primary commodities.
This project is part of an initiative that will provide evidence and strengthen capacity for bridging the knowledge gap in responding to the growing COVID-19 health crisis both in the short term and in the longer term.
