The 2017 TTCSP Global Go To Think Tank Index ranks BIDPA number one among think tanks in the Sub-Saharan Africa region, and 42nd on the list of Top Think Tanks Globally (US institutions excepted).

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.
