Description

International development with lasting impact

Whether you are experienced or new to working in these contexts, this workshop will give you the opportunity to think about how you can do research that delivers Official Development Assistance (ODA) and lasting impacts.


  • Get advice on how to write a fundable GCRF proposal from a former GCRF panelist
  • Explore evidence-based principles to underpin the development of GCRF impact summaries, pathways to impact, ODA statements and Theories of Change
  • Learn how to use tools for identifying international partners, stakeholders and publics, and identifying potential impacts, showing how a Theory of Change can be constructed from the bottom-up, based on impact goals identified in-country
  • Discover tools that can enable GCRF teams to track planned impacts as well as opportunistic impacts as they arise. You have the opportunity to review eight different approaches to designing an evaluation and then in small groups design your own impact evaluation
  • Finally, you consider how to manage meetings with international (including non-academic) partners and workshops with stakeholders and publics that are efficient and enjoyable. You learn easy-to-use tools to manage power dynamics and deal with difficult individuals and situations, so you can lead with confidence with no training or experience.

The training is based on the latest research evidence and takes a unique relational approach to deliver wide-reaching and lasting impacts.
