Unleashing the talent: Building equitable knowledge ecosystems
Download publication files
To tackle global challenges and address the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) we need to bring the latest evidence to bear on the most pressing and intractable problems. But, important knowledge and important voices are missing.
This concept note outlines INASP's thinking on why we need strong and equitable national knowledge ecosystems, where diverse voices are recognized and those who commission, produce, communicate and use research and knowledge can work effectively together.
We are building on 25 years of working with partners, of learning what works and what does not. Our commitment to learning and our sustained efforts to increase the impact of our work have enabled us to define approaches to capacity development that achieve lasting change. But our work has also shown us that we need to go beyond our existing tools, to support partners to connect, convene and influence to drive change at system level.
Our aim is to develop a wider programme, through which we can work with a diverse group of partners and funders to collectively address equity in research and knowledge systems.
