Research, Education & Capacity Building
Good evidence which is relevant to policy makers and practitioners is dependent on high quality research. Our work on research and capacity building in international development brings together efforts to evaluate research funding programmes, the quality of research, and capacity building initiatives. Together these projects seek to inform efforts around the world aimed to improve the quality of research and evaluations available to policy makers.
