Building impact over time in Zimbabwe

July 2, 2015

Ian Scoones, Director of the ESRC STEPS Centre, Institute of Development Studies, University of Sussex, recently wrote a blog discussing the importance of generating impact and how best to sustain it over time. Based on a 15 year study of rural livelihoods in Zimbabwe, the blog explores how to engage with different audiences through a range of channels to generate debate and how to build capacity for critical and engaged research.

Part of this longitudinal study was funded by DEGRP, in the form of the ‘Space, Markets and Employment in Agricultural Development (SMEAD) project, which investigates the relationship between farm and non-farm activities in rural economies in Malawi, South Africa, And Zimbabwe.
