Support to Centre for Public Policy & Good Governance in Uttarakhand

The Centre for Public Policy and Good Governance (CPPGG) anchored in the Department of Planning was formed in 2017 to act as a think tank to support the Government of Uttarakhand in governance and policy reforms. UNDP has engaged specialists to support CPPGG by providing policy and planning support to various State Government departments in areas of livelihood, climate change, training and capacity building, MIS (Management Information System), M&E (Monitoring and Evaluation) and policy research.



The Centre aims to accelerate sustainable growth of the State of Uttarakhand through action research and analytics, resulting in better planning and creation of a robust policy framework.
