Research and Policy Partnerships for Global Development: Why it matters, how it works and what to do
Webinar to promote collaborations and partnerships between academics, policymakers and practitioners with a focus on the Global South.
The LMIC Research Network brings together social science research focusing on the Global South. It aims to promote collaborations and partnerships between academics, policy makers and practitioners.
Global sustainable development requires robust evidence to inform policy and effect long term change. Close dialogue and collaboration between academia, policy and practice are key enablers to the production and use of impactful research. Nonetheless this relationship can often be elusive. This webinar will help to build mutual understandings and identify future collaboration areas between researchers and policy stakeholders.
