Call for Papers: (2024) ADB-IEA Innovative Policy Research Award

The ADB-IEA Innovative Policy Research Award promotes the application of innovative empirical research in economics to support evidence-based policies for addressing key development challenges in Asia and the Pacific.

Research papers should offer empirical evidence on advancing global and regional public goods in areas of relevance to ADB’s operational priorities, which include:

  • Addressing remaining poverty and reducing inequalities
  • Accelerating progress in gender equality
  • Tackling climate change, building climate and disaster resilience, and enhancing environmental sustainability
  • Making cities more livable
  • Promoting rural development and food security
  • Strengthening governance and institutional capacity
  • Regional cooperation and integration. Impact evaluations are particularly encouraged.

Award for ADB-IEA Innovative Policy Research Award

  • The author of the award-winning paper will receive a $7,000 grant financed by ADB. If the winning paper has coauthors, the award will be shared equally among coauthors.
  • The top three papers will be presented at the ADB-IEA Award session of the 2024 ADB Annual Meeting. ADB intends to apply the ideas generated by the award-winning paper to its operations and policy advice.


Submissions should meet the following eligibility criteria:

  • The paper must be an original research work in economics that provides evidence for better solutions/policies to address a key development challenge in Asia and the Pacific.
  • The paper has not been published or is under consideration by peer-reviewed journals.
  • The researcher is willing to work with policymakers in an ADB developing member country to test and develop the research into policy solutions.
  • Researchers from any country may apply, but the policy solutions must be relevant for an ADB developing member country.
  • We especially encourage young and female scholars and researchers from universities, think-tanks, and academic institutions to apply.
