IDRC have put together this useful guide entitled “How to write a policy brief”. It covers pretty much everything you need to think about when developing a new brief, from framing the problem and defining the structure, to developing actionable recommendations.
Research To Action (R2A) is a learning platform for anyone interested in maximising the impact of research and capturing evidence of impact.
The site publishes practical resources on a range of topics including research uptake, communications, policy influence and monitoring and evaluation. It captures the experiences of practitioners and researchers working on these topics and facilitates conversations between this global community through a range of social media platforms.
R2A is produced by a small editorial team, led by CommsConsult. We welcome suggestions for and contributions to the site.
