The 2017 Publishers for Development Conference will explore how publishers, librarians and researchers can work together to support the use, production and sharing of research in developing countries.
The conference will host international speakers from publishers, country representatives and others involved in research information provision, access and uptake from Kenya, Sierra Leone, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and the UK. The final programme of the conference and details of this year’s speakers are available.
About Publishers for Development
Publishers for Development (PfD) was launched in 2008. Project activities bring together stakeholders from key groups within the global research and publishing community to create common understanding of challenges, needs and priorities. At the heart of PfD is the belief that sustainable access to research and information takes a central role in driving development across sectors in the global South.
Founded in 1992, INASP is an international development organization working with a global network of partners in Africa, Latin America and Asia. In line with the vision of research and knowledge at the heart of development, INASP works to support individuals and institutions to produce, share and use research and knowledge, which can transform lives.
INASP’s approaches are based on the core pillars of capacity development, convening, influencing and working in partnership. INASP promotes equity by actively addressing the needs of both men and women across all our work and addressing issues of power within the research and knowledge system. INASP has projects in 28 countries, supporting all aspects of research and knowledge systems, from facilitating the provision of information to researchers to helping parliamentarians and civil servants to use research and evidence in policy making.
