Investigating the development outcomes and impact of research undertaken under the Australian Development Research Awards Scheme (ADRAS). The ADRAS was a significant Australian Government investment into development research between 2007-2016.
The purpose of this study was to uncover the pathways to impact used by the ADRAS projects and to document real world changes in policy and practice. By understanding these key facilitators of influence, researchers and research funders can more strategically plan their pathway to impact.
The report provides a breadth of different ways in which ADRAS-funded research led to development outcomes across health, gender, disability, water and sanitation, education and other sectors and in multiple countries including Cambodia, Indonesia, Fiji, Papua New Guinea, Timor-Leste and others.
