Research and Training Wing (R&TW) envisions creating an eco-system of stakeholders from academia, government and industry for dynamic inter-linkages that culminate into evidence-based planning and research-based policy making. R&TW aims to play the instrumental role of a conduit between the academia and government to bring together top international and national researchers to engage with policy makers in Sindh and Pakistan for effective solutions to the challenges faced by the province and country. For this, our approach is centered on actionable academic research that feeds into planning and policy formulation of the Planning and Development Department. Ultimately, our partnerships and collaborations with both academia and industry will lead to improved service delivery for the population. Capacity building of the public sector is also a core component of our objectives which has both direct and indirect connections with our research approach.
