Stakeholder engagement in Uganda: From findings to recommendations
January 8, 2016
Arriving at policy recommendations from research findings is no simple task, and ensuring those recommendations are relevant is more complicated still.
DEGRP agriculture researchers exploring agricultural investment decisions in Uganda were well aware of this when they embarked on their research in February 2012. To ensure their recommendations were as useful as possible, they incorporated various stages of stakeholder engagement into their research, holding consultations at local and national level over the duration of the project.
The results of this engagement – how it informed their thinking and final policy advice – have been written up in a detailed stakeholder engagement report, featuring a step-by-step visualisation of each phase of consultation and how it influenced their research.
