Regional Synthesis and Dissemination of Research Results in Eastern and Southern Africa

Over the past five years, IDRC's Rural Poverty and Environment (RPE) program initiative has funded a number of projects in eastern and southern Africa. While these projects have produced a considerable body of knowledge, dissemination of their results has been limited. This grant will support a synthesis of approaches, principles, advances, experiences and lessons learned with respect to natural resource management (NRM) from the RPE work carried out over the past five years. It will also serve to build the capacity of researchers, scientists and development partners to integrate dissemination strategies as part of their research projects. The project will also involve a range of stakeholders in a consultative process to identify conspicuous knowledge gaps, emerging regional trends and priorities for future NRM research in eastern and southern Africa.
