Let’s talk about communications!
Christiane Kliemann works part-time in communications for the European Association of Development Research and Training Institutes (EADI). She is also a freelance journalist and lecturer on degrowth (https://www.degrowth.info/en/), post-growth, and social-ecological transformation. She has worked in communications at the UN Climate Change secretariat UNFCCC (https://unfccc.int/) and as editor at Deutsche Welle (https://www.dw.com/en/top-stories/news/s-30701).
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.
