RAPID believes that development research and evaluation should be rigorous, relevant and useful. This will build smarter and stronger systems for policy-makers and practitioners to effect change.

- More appropriate and targeted communication of results.
- More flexible and rigorous evaluation to generate credible evidence.
- Better mechanisms for sharing knowledge and learning.
