The Botswana Institute for Development Policy Analysis has once again been ranked among the top think tanks in Sub-Saharan Africa. The 2016 TTCSP Global Go To Think Tank Index Report ranks BIDPA third in the Sub-Saharan Africa region, after CODESRIA (Senegal) and KIPPRA (Kenya). This achievement accords BIDPA the top spot among think tanks in the Southern African Development Community (SADC) region. The TTCSP (Think Tanks and Civil Societies Program) produces the annual Global Go To Think Tank Index that ranks the world’s leading think tanks in a variety of categories. The goal of the program is to increase the profile and performance of think tanks and raise the public awareness of the important role think tanks play in governments and civil societies around the globe.
