Sector Expert Consultations
From June to September 2017, India Consensus will be hosting almost 50 sector expert consultations across Andhra Pradesh. The purpose of the sector expert consultations is to introduce policy makers and decision-makers in Andhra Pradesh to the India Consensus, the Andhra Pradesh Priorities project and to describe the kinds of outcomes and how these can be used in prioritizing policies. The sector expert consultations also provide the first chance for participants to give their views and input on what are the key issues facing Andhra Pradesh at this moment in time, and what are some of the solutions which they believe are important to the state and are worthwhile researching.
The sector expert consultation is an opportunity to learn about how the project will take place over the upcoming months, and how to engage with it during this period. In the series of sector expert consultations, we expect to cover all priority sectors for Andhra Pradesh.
These discussions are expected to address a wide range of policy areas, from education, health, and governance to trade, infrastructure development, and energy policy interventions specifically in the Andhra Pradesh context. These major interventions would be further researched to help establish cost benefit analysis along with review of existing literature, using data and planning documents, together with sector expert input and broad stakeholder engagement,
The audience for sector expert consultations includes policy makers and decision makers with responsibility for planning, budgeting and prioritizing across different sectors and fields. Participants are likely to be from state government, think tanks, international agencies, philanthropists, business, academia and the media.
