Ros Goodrich is Head of Research Communications at IIED. She leads on the Communications Group objective to build strategic research communication skills and best practice throughout IIED, and is also responsible for the management and implementation of communications and engagement support associated with the WAVES partnership. Ros is using the learning from in-country policy engagements such as this to inform other projects across the organisation.
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.
