Partnerships in Practice

Topics Cross-sector partnerships | Research partnerships | Case studies | Tools & Guidance

The RDI Network seeks to strengthen cross-sector partnerships and linkages which promote the development and uptake of quality research in international development policy and practice. As a community and platform for establishing connections, the Network aims to foster collaborations and partnerships which advance and add value to research undertaken by the sector.

The resources below provide a showcase of effective partnership examples and seek to guide potential partnerships by sharing from learned experiences. They are collated into three categories:

  • Case Studies
  • Learning and Development
  • Tools and Guidance
