Research Advisory Committee
The research program is informed and shaped by strategic advice from key stakeholders in the region. The Research Advisory Committee consists of members comprising of a private sector representatives, academics and peak body representatives. The role of the Research Advisory Committee is to provide strategic advice for the research program and inform research priorities, processes and findings.
Scoping report on research priorities in the region
The first phase of the research involved mapping out the research priorities for the region to shape a more comprehensive three-year program. The scoping process involved consultation with key research partners and other regional and global stakeholders. Humanitarian actors in Asia and the Pacific were invited to rank our research ideas by their practicality for informing their work, and encouraged to suggest completely new ideas.
