news details

The Botswana Institute for Development Policy Analysis (BIDPA) has been ranked fourth among African think tanks in the recently released 2015 Global Go To Think Tank Index. This is a remarkable achievement considering that the institute's ranking has been progressing steadily over the years. BIDPA was ranked fifth in the same index in 2014, while in 2013 and 2012 the institute was ranked tenth and twelfth respectively. In 2011 the institute occupied the twenty ninth place. This trend is a reflection of growth in the delivery of the think tank mandate of the institute.

The Global Go To Think Tank Index is produced annually by Think Tanks and Civil Societies Program (TTCSP) at the University of Pennsylvania. The TTCSP collaborates with leading scholars and practitioners in universities and think tanks in assessing the role and character of public policy research organizations.
