Journal of Development Policy, Research & Practice


Charting the Course of Research Excellence

The Sustainable Development Policy Institute (SDPI) is now known as Asia’s leading non-partisan policy research organisation providing the global development community representation from Pakistan and the region as a whole. Over the past 28 years, it has remained staunchly committed to the mission it set for itself upon inception in 1992:

To catalyse the transition towards sustainable development, defined as the enhancement of peace, social justice and well-being, within and across generations.

SDPI functions in an advisory capacity by carrying out robust research, providing practical policy advice and initiating proactive advocacy; and in an enabling capacity by strengthening other individuals and organisations with resource materials (like its flagship Journal of Development Policy, Research & Practice) and trainings.
