Caroline started her PhD at the University of Birmingham in January 2018, and is investigating actionable knowledge for disaster risk reduction, looking at the role of collaborative governance in enhancing community resilience. Caroline holds a BA (Hons) in English literature and American studies from Liverpool John Moores University, a nMA in post-1900 literatures, theories and cultures from the University of Manchester, and an MA in environment and development from Lancaster University. She has worked alongside conservation NGOs in Annapurna Conservation Area in Nepal, and conducted research as part of a project funded by Lancaster Environment Centre's Seed Fund, collecting preliminary data in the Bangladesh Delta exploring the implementation and cohesion of cyclone-resistant housing projects in rural villages.
Research to Action (R2A) is a website catering for the strategic and practical needs of people trying to improve the uptake of development research, in particular those funded by DFID.
We have structured the site and populated it with material that we think will be immediately useful to this audience, but also to development researchers in general who would like to be more strategic and effective in their communications.
R2A is produced by a small editorial team, led by CommsConsult. We welcome suggestions for and contributions to the site.
