Think tank

Cepei is an independent, non-profit, data driven think tank, working through field based analysis and high-level advocacy to scale up a multi-stakeholder participation within the development process at all levels. Since 2002 they have been working with decision takers, by conducting targeted research projects and proposed policy strategies within Central & South America, in order to ensure an effective mapping exercise of the development ecosystems across the region. Their initiatives aim to generate capacities and provide demand driven data to ensure that the development community is supported to make a meaningful and sustained contribution during the implementation process of the Sustainable Development Goals. They do this in collaboration with an inter-institutional coalition of organizations: government, multilateral and philanthropic organizations, private sector, civil society, as well as academic and think-tank organizations.
