Under the Spaces for Engagement: using knowledge to improve public decisions programme, GDNet and CIPPEC have produced different types of resources addressing the link between research and policy, and aiming at building southern researcher's capacity to maximize their research uptake. The toolkit How to design a policy influence plan addresses various components of a public policy influence plan: what an influence plan is and why it is important; the policy making context; influence objectives, actors and alliances; strategies and communication; resources and timeline, among others.
Toolkit No.10: What have we learned? An approximation to monitoring and evaluation of policy influence is also available in Spanish: Guía N°10 Qué aprendimos. Aproximación al monitoreo y evaluación de la incidencia.
