About the Organization
Nation First Policy Research Centre is a policy think-tank based in Delhi, NFPRC works with the government to advance relevant policy design & implementation. It works closely with the government to advance relevant policies and effective on-ground implementation. NFPRC conducts rigorous, in-depth research and employs systems thinking to arrive at creative policy solutions, and works in close consultation with the government and public institutions to implement policies on the ground. NFPRC undertakes both extensive, peer-reviewed research for long-term projects, as well as incisive, quick-turnaround research for actionable agenda. By leveraging its research capacity, NFPRC assists the Government in reviewing old policies, formulating design and implementation strategies for new ones, and finding ways to enhance the on-ground effectiveness of ongoing schemes.
In addition, NFPRC also conducts impact evaluation of existing policy interventions to identify lacunae or roadblocks and suggest remedial actions. NFPRC has consciously steered clear from falling into the trap of creating another scholastic silo or a stand-alone intellectual island. The process of consultations is therefore institutionalised through its Research Advisory Group(s) comprising academicians, civil society members as well as private sector representatives on each identified Research Topic. Functionally, therefore, research at NF is manifested through its formal research, of which RAGs form a critical component as well as its Policy Observatory. The former develops background papers; situational analysis papers (problem statements); and approach papers (policy design).
