"BIDPA Newsletter is produced by the BIDPA library and provides an update of research and consultancy projects, and other general activities. Over the years BIDPA has consolidated its position as a recognised think tank, and remains steadfast in delivering in its mandate which encompasses policy research and analysis; institutional capacity building; professional training; networking and public education; and dissemination and publication. Since the beginning of the year BIDPA researchers have been preoccupied with both supply and demand driven projects, although the latter seems to take the upper edge. This notwithstanding, BIDPA remains focused on its strategy to maintain a healthy balance between supply and demand driven work."
