This Brief shares insights from the 11-year DFID-funded Renewable
Natural Resources Research Strategy (RNRRS) in the area of policy
advocacy. In particular it discusses five key considerations for the
uptake of research outputs and highlights lessons for future advocacy
work within the natural resources sector. It draws on the experience of
research projects from the Department for International Development's
(DFID's) Forestry Research Programme (FRP - hydrology cluster),
Livestock Production Programme (LPP - landless livestock-keeper cluster)
and Crop Post Harvest Programme (CPHP - street food cluster). The
research clusters were selected as examples of successful or significant
engagement with policy makers.
This Brief is an edited summary of a paper commissioned by the Forestry
Research Programme: Betser, L.; Palmer, J.; Bird, N. Effective policy
advocacy: An RNRRS synthesis.
