DfID Research Strategy

The UK’s Department for International Development is consulting on its research strategy. It follows the Department’s 2006 White Paper. The consultation asks how DfID can:

  • build on their four research themes (agriculture, “killer diseases”, governance and climate change)
  • improve the way it identifies demand for research from end-users
  • promote cross-cutting research that will benefit poor people
  • help developing countries to conduct and use research
  • make it more likely that research will be used

There is an on-line questionnaire to that will be open until 23 September. The BES is planning to respond to the consultation.
