Announcing the ISID-CIDA Research to Practice Policy Briefs


Published: 26 Nov 2012

ISID is pleased to announce the launch of our new publication series, Research to Practice Policy Briefs. The papers, which were made possible by generous funding from the Canadian International Development Agency as part of our ongoing Strengthening the Contributions of Universities to Evidence-Based Policymaking project, touch on a number of cutting-edge topics in development. We feel they are excellent examples of how top-notch university-level research can be used to develop innovative solutions to the urgent challenges that organizations like CIDA must address. In this way, ISID continues to strive to make direct contributions to better evidence-based policies.
