The mission of the CAREC Institute is to generate and disseminate evidence based research, while the Institute strives to offer sustainable policy options for better economic development and provide evidence for policy practice in the five priority areas of the CAREC 2030 Strategy. “This conference provides a platform for researchers and policy stakeholders through research cooperation to discuss regional issues develop new ideas and explore potential solutions to the complex problems faced by countries in the Central Asian region,” notes Iskandar Abdullayev, Deputy Director of the CAREC Institute.
The science event aims to strengthen the link between research and policy making by systematically documenting policy-oriented research and generating up-to-date ideas about economic growth and regional integration adapted for CAREC countries. Thanks to this, the region is successfully adapting to the new economic, social, and environmental realities of the modern world in the context of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
The conference will be a catalyst for the sustainable delivery of research results and their translation into policy prescriptions for better economic development and integration in the CAREC region.
