Community engaged research (CEnR) is a framework or approach for conducting research and advocacy not a methodology in and of itself, and it is characterised by specific principles that guide the research and the relationships between the communities and academic researchers1. Some of the think tanks of the TTI are using the CEnR approach to promote better quality research and translation of findings.
On day two of the TTI Exchange, one parallel session explored this approach. Session 2.E, “Community-engaged Research”, featured presentations from Dr. Ajaya Dixit, Institute for Social and Environmental Transition-Nepal (ISET-N); Dr. Andrew Onokerhoraye, Centre for Population and Environmental Development (CPED), Nigeria; Dr. Arthur Bainomugisha, Advocates Coalition for Development and Environment (ACODE), Uganda; and Dr. Udan Fernando, Centre for Poverty Analysis, Sri Lanka.
The slides which accompanied these presentations are now available below.
