Evaluation of Research Dissemination, DFID
2001-2002; United Kingdom; DFID
Itad was contracted by DFID to produce the evaluation. Work included all stages of the evaluation from the development of an evaluation framework, the design and piloting of evaluation tools, to the completion and presentation of the final report.
A small sub-sample of research project were analysed, and key informant interviews were held with the DFID personnel and programme managers in the rural livelihoods (NRSP, Crop Protection Programme, etc) economic and social, infrastructure and health research programmes.
DFID commissioned the evaluation of research dissemination to describe and review current means used by DFID to disseminate knowledge derived from research, identify examples of better (and worse) practice, and make recommendations on how the impact of DFID research dissemination could be enhanced.Image © Helping remote communities to improve their livelihoods.
