SDPI firmly believes that to foster social development in order to catalyze the societal need for social justice & wellbeing across generations, it is extremely important to carry out research on issues at the foundation of gender exclusion and gender disparities. SDPI has always been at the forefront to turn its research on gender issues into effective policy advocacy campaigns. A deliberate effort is made to include gender as a cross cutting theme in all research being carried out at SDPI.
