This project supports capacity development as an extension to K4DM’s ongoing training, mentorship, and core funding support to think tanks in Myanmar. Informed by learning from the K4DM mid-term evaluation, the project will increase local presence and policy engagement. It will support continued training and mentorship for an additional year (until mid-2021), with more frequent interactions supported by both greater local presence and remote connectivity. The project also provides training and funding for small-scale ideas to find practical solutions to key policy issues, such as responses to the COVID-19 crisis. Well-established and emerging think tanks will pair up to implement these ideas, reinforce training, and create synergies for peer learning within the expanding community of think tanks during the critical period surrounding the 2020 Myanmar elections.
