Improving uptake of past research outputs – DFID Water for Food. Inception Report. Constraints to uptake and recommendations for effective dissemination.
The project purpose is to increase the benefits from past DFID funded research into Water for Food Production, (KAR Theme W5) by collaborative development of targeted training and dissemination materials. The project is divided into two phases. In the first phase the project team has reviewed the extent of sustained uptake of past DFID W5 research outputs both in the institutions represented in the team (universities) and in the various government and private sector agencies active in the management of water for food. This Inception Report presents the findings of that review and their implications for the second phase of the project. It recommends some changes to the scope of the second phase which should bring about better dissemination and uptake of past work. It therefore marks the end of the first phase of the project and represents the first project output.
