The external evaluation of Phase Two of the Think Tank Initiative (2014-2019), undertaken by NIRAS, found that core grant support yielded significant results through flexibility and space for think tanks to develop strategies and put them into action. This was reinforced by continuous accompaniment and advice from Regional Program Officers and, to a lesser extent, through supplementary capacity development inputs.
