National Academies of Science, Engineering and Medicine Recognize the PEPR Network's Success
In a recent consensus report on Advancing the Power of Economic Evidence to Inform Investments in Children, Youth, and Families, the National academies recognized the important role PEPR is playing to develop high-quality economic evidence and support its use. In the report, the Academies noted the opportunity to build on existing multi stakeholder partnerships such as the PEPR Network, the Jameel Poverty Action Lab and the Human Capital and Economic Opportunity Global Working Group. Further, the Academies offer specific recommendations that encourage emulating the success of the PEPR Network. For instance, the Academies recommends that 'Program developers, public and private funders, and policy makers should design, support, and incorporate comprehensive stakeholder partnerships (involving producers, consumers, and intermediaries) into action plans related to the use of economic evidence.'
