Research and knowledge ecosystems must be both strong and equitable to ensure that diverse talents, ideas and energies can be brought to bear on local and global challenges.

INASP’s global learning platforms support the production, sharing and use of research and knowledge across the Global South and provide a foundation for capacity development and improving equity.

Over the past year, within a Sida-funded programme of work to support Strong and Equitable Research and Knowledge Systems (SERKS), we continued our commitment to the AuthorAID platform for connecting and supporting researchers; our platform for online learning; and our support to improving quality of publishing processes of Southern journals. We also supported eight national library consortia so that they now manage their relationships with publishers directly.

This work on strengthening global platforms complements our work to explore in more depth issues of inequity within national research and knowledge systems.
