Peeling back the layers of the onion: Theories of Change, assumptions and evidence
Isabel Vogel is an independent consultant supporting organisations to achieve their social goals through learning, evidence and innovation.

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.
