Leveraging the grassroots REAP learning, this program supports young policy entrepreneurs to support the government conduct economic policy research and promote evidence-based policy decisions. During the past eight fellowship cycles (2013-2020), the fellowship program has supported 120 young policy professionals from 30 countries to conduct research projects for 40 government organizations as well as 24 parliamentarians at federal, provincial and municipal levels. Daayitwa Fellows gather evidence from beneficiaries in the field, consult with key stakeholders, and prepare evidence-based policy recommendations.
