The APO Policy Briefs are short reports that synthesize evidence and experience from different contexts in relation to particular policy challenges in a concise (maximum 25 pages) report backed up, if necessary, by a research paper. These Policy Briefs are tailored to provide policymakers with evidence-informed policy options to topics that confront policy in the region. All Policy Briefs follow a standard template – a 3 page Policy Brief and a longer working paper.
The APO’s Research Hubs and Network Members, APO Board members and Secretariat, as well as other partners and stakeholders including policy-makers can propose topics for the briefs. The APO works with the Research Hub and Network Members to prepare the Policy Briefs.
