A tool to guide policy makers to derive specific policies and regulatory mechanisms in an agile and iterative manner – integrating both design thinking and evidence - based policy making. This notion of a canvas is borrowed from the business world. The canvas approach helps translate broad insights and understandings to the needs of a particular country. It also helps define the key issues at stake as well as metrics to evaluate success and suggest avenues for possible iteration and improvement.
About this tool
