The Pardee Institute partners with academic researchers, development practitioners, analysts, and and policymakers as they contemplate and plan for the future. Our work with them focuses on understanding what drives global change, strategic policy analysis, and policy trade-offs. 

The Pardee Institute's partners help to enhance the Institute's ability to support policy making through the development of a scaleable IFs user base, increased public discourse, innovation, and a strengthened scientific foundation.

“Knowledge is AUDA-NEPAD’s prime commodity in its work to catalyze and support implementation of Africa’s Agenda 2063. In that regard, the IFs model and the Pardee Center have been extremely and uniquely valuable with respect to forecasting. Forecasts of different outcomes in differing circumstances have added an important dimension to African Union member states to ensure informed policy and investment choices.”
