A revision of the second edition published in 2006, this version will include more extensive and more geographically diverse information on think tank management practices, including data and examples from developing countries. The updated edition will also provide case studies of good management practices and comprehensive advice on these practices for think tanks and their funders. It will draw case studies from and be disseminated to the Think Tank Initiative grantees, among other audiences.

for development of accountability options for Family Planning Summit commitments
This renewal grant would allow Results for Development (R4D) to continue to develop options to strengthen monitoring and accountability mechanisms for the commitments made at the Family Planning Summit in July 2012 (FP2020). At the Summit, donors and governments pledged $4.6 billion to provide 120 million additional women with family planning information and services by the year 2020. R4D plans refine the options for accountability mechanisms based on consultations with key stakeholders, and generate support for funding and implementation of the emerging final recommendations.
