Research for Development Impact Network is a vibrant community of academics and practitioners engaged in international development research. We share knowledge and advocate for high impact, high quality, ethical research that matters.

RDI Network fosters collaboration between universities and the broader ecosystem of private, not-for-profit and public sector organisations engaged in research for development. We support collaborative partnerships to improve the uptake and use of evidence in policy and practice. We provide a platform for sharing and shaping international development research insights, methods and tools.

Our members connect with each other to learn, to share expertise, and to amplify the impact of important research. While Australian-based, RDI Network welcomes members from around the world, most especially the Oceania region, South-East Asia and regions across the Global South.

RDI Network is a registered Australian charity.
