Research and Policy in Development

Working at the interface between knowledge, policy and practice, RAPID occupies a unique place in ODI’s range of expert teams. We are dedicated to improving the integration of local knowledge and research-based evidence into policy-making. We work with researchers, think tanks, civil society, donors and governments to develop capacity for policy influence and evidence-informed policy-making.
