Connections

The WCPC’s core projects include developing and supporting policy-relevant joint practitioner-academic research projects; bringing together researchers, policymakers, and practitioners for ongoing learning and collaboration to identify and address knowledge needs; and disseminating and translating academic research to make it accessible to, and actionable by, people on the ground.
