1. In this short video Dr. Hoseana B. Lunogelo* introduces us to the idea that ‘knowledge’ has a value chain that needs to be considered - upstream and downstream.

    ‘This value chain often reflects the type of research that has been produced - supply driven or demand driven. Demand driven research normally produces better short-term impact, whereas supply driven research tends not to give policy makers answers to their specific questions.’

    ‘Young researchers need support on developing supply driven research that fits 'real world' problems. They also need to ensure that they are ready to deliver demand driven research, and try to ensure that they keep abreast with changing societal and policy needs so that they can deliver short term demand driven research that meets the needs of policy makers in an appropriate way.’

    *Executive Director at the Economic and Social Research Foundation (ESRF), Tanzania

This channel features videos by Research to Action (researchtoaction.org/). Research to Action (R2A) is a website catering for the strategic and practical needs of people trying to improve the uptake of development research, in particular those funded by DFID.

We have structured the site and populated it with material that we think will be immediately useful to this audience, but also to development researchers in general who would like to be more strategic and effective in their communications.
