What has been the impact of your solution to date?
Each year a survey is conducted by the CPRsouth administrative partner LIRNEasia to evaluate the community's activities related to the communication policy research arena. According to survey 87 percent of the respondents have done work related to communication, ICT and telecom policy and 73 percent hopes to continue in the same field in future.
The survey also revealed that 12 individuals have submitted policy briefs, seven have made policy presentations and submissions, six have carried out policy or project implementations ever since they participated in one of the CPRsouth conferences (CPRsouth 1- 6). The survey also questioned them
regarding their media activities; seven have given interviews to media, five have submitted op-ed pieces and 10 have participated in related blogs.
