This fact sheet is based on a study which aims to understand the links and gaps between the use of research and the formulation of development policies. The results of this work are synthesized here - what is known about good practice in linking research and policy, both in the water sector and beyond, in the SPLASH partner countries. These results have contributed to the development of recommendations for the more effective uptake by policy makers of European funded research on water for development. This is one of the core activities of SPLASH.
