UNCTAD’s work on RBPM
  • Since its origin in 1964, UNCTAD has been stressing the connection between its research and policy advice (direct provision by international organization)
  • Since 2004, decision to focus also on support to national research capacities (locally sourced research) through the Virtual Institute (Vi)

The aim of the Vi is to help developing countries strengthen the capacities of their universities and research institutions to undertake research and provide policy advice

slide5
Locally sourced research: the situation
  • A lack of communication (and sometimes trust…) between researchers and policymakers
  • Policymakers are not always informed about ongoing research
  • Researchers often lack knowledge of the most pressing policy questions that they would need to have to make their research more policy relevant
