Message from the Chairperson
It is encouraging to see that the Research and Training Wing has been revitalized and restructured in 2017-2018. It is my sincere hope that RTW will evolve as a research and capacity building body of the Planning and Development Department. A series of initiatives have been undertaken to revamp the Wing which includes a state of the art office and technical core staff with sector-specific expertise. Although the revitalization is at a nascent stage, I firmly believe that RTW will transform into a premier Research and Training Institute that will serve all the departments of the Government. Moving forward, I would like to see the Wing as the conduit between academia and the government with sustainable collaborations that are beneficial for the people of Sindh.
Message from the Director General
I am pleased to see that the Research and Training Wing has been revitalized and restructured in 2017-2018. After years of dormancy, the revitalization process is reflective of the efforts undertaken by Government of Sindh to use credible findings from research for evidence-based policy formulation and strategic planning. It is my sincere hope that RTW will evolve as a capacity development body of the Planning and Development Department, Government of Sindh.
My ultimate aim as the Director-General is to empower the Wing to serve as a knowledge hub for P&DD, and other departments of the Government of Sindh. We have initiated series of collaborations with academia for meaningful partnerships with the public sector to improve service delivery for the benefit of Sindh’s population through capacity development and research initiatives to inform the relevant government officials.
I firmly believe that RTW will transform into a premier Research and Training Institute that will serve all the departments of the Government. Moving forward, I would like to see the Wing as the conduit of knowledge transmission that informs policymakers with best development practices from across the globe for rational impactful decisions that are grounded in solid evidence.
