Understanding how research is put into use
The rationale for this project was the striking gap between knowledge of the important role of ecosystem services, on one hand, and the use of this knowledge in poverty reduction and inclusive growth strategies, on the other.
The ESPA programme was actively seeking to promote mechanisms to enhance the use of research, and recognised that there was no blueprint formula for putting research into use. Previous experience, especially in different disciplines and sectors, provided helpful guidance for current and future ESPA research.
This project proposed to undertake a review of existing knowledge and experience in order to support ESPA’s evolving Research Into Use strategy.
