Research-to-Policy (R2P) Program

PRCI has designed its R2P program to ensure that strategies for policy influence, based on rigorous thinking about the local policy environment and avenues for impact, are included at the design phase of all its policy research.  The program features extensive interaction with each research team from PRCI partner centers in Africa and Asia around (a) interactive policy landscape mapping specific to the research topic they are pursuing, and (b) development of a policy outreach strategy based on this mapping, specifying the target audience(s), the events that will be held with each audience and their timing, and how the issue will be framed with each audience. 

To learn more about the best practices for designing research projects intended to influence policy, watch the video presentation below from Dr. Danielle Resnick.
