Sharing research findings with decision-makers and ensuring their uptake is a crucial task for the Young Lives Team. To inform and influence means looking carefully and strategically at how we communicate information and knowledge. Communications, like policy engagement, needs to be recognised as a multi-directional effort, with researchers and stakeholders positively involved in planning and carrying out communications work as well as the other aspects of the project, in order to create an environment where informed decision-making is possible.
By employing multiple engagement tools in a variety of ways, Young Lives Peru has become known as reliable source of research data and policy analysis for a diverse range of stakeholders working in education.
