London, 31 July 2012. At the end of the R4D Theory of Change workshop held at DFID, we recorded a conversation with Simon Batchelor (IDS) and Duncan Green (Oxfam GB). In this video, Simon and Duncan explain how they got interested in Theories of Change. They discuss how ToC can be used in research programmes and how DFID and other donors could created incentives for researchers to use ToC in their work.
Other commentary on the workshop includes a blog post by Andrew Clappison entitled ‘10 ways DFID can improve Theories of Change for Research Uptake’ and another by Duncan Green entitled ‘Can theories of change help researchers (or their funders) have more impact?‘
