Initiatives

PolicyWise manages projects and initiatives that support its four strategic directions. These strategic directions reinforce our core functions and are PolicyWise’ focus from 2014-2018. Activities that support these strategic directions are listed in the drop-down menu under the Intiatives’ tab.
