Workshop on Writing Policy Briefs, Can Tho, Viet Nam

On 28 July 2015, LMPPI team organized a workshop on writing policy briefs for Mekong Delta partners including Cuu Long 1 and Cuu Long 2 research teams. This workshop was designed to help LMPPI partners draft policy briefs, the first required project output. Instructed by Dr. Malcolm MacPherson of the Harvard Kennedy School, members of the research projects learned about the role of policy briefs in identifying critical issues and in linking those issues to policy making processes. Dr. MacPherson introduced the typical structure of a policy brief, then groups practiced writing policy brief outlines. The team also took this opportunity to clarify outstanding questions and discuss implementation progress, work plans, and expected outputs.
