Policy-oriented Research in the CGIAR: assessing the impact

CGIAR, SPIA 2008

Building on an earlier exploratory study, in 2007–08 the CGIAR’s Standing Panel on Impact Assessment (SPIA) undertook an initiative in collaboration with seven CGIAR centers to augment the evidence of policy-oriented research (POR) impacts within the CGIAR system and to further the development of methodologies in this challenging area of impact assessment. Seven case studies were commissioned. This impact brief describes the major results that emerged from the overall study. <br>
