FHI 360 launches blog on research and evaluation: "R&E Search for Evidence"
FHI 360 is launching a new blog, “R&E Search for Evidence,” to deliver in-depth coverage of research and evaluation methods and findings that address the world’s most complex human development challenges. The blog discusses innovative methodologies, offers critical reviews of journal articles and analyzes recent evaluation and research findings. Blog posts feature the analysis of FHI 360 thought leaders from multiple expertise areas, including civil society, communication, economic development, education, environment, gender, health, nutrition, research, social marketing, technology and youth.
Information tools that appeal to — and reach — specialized academic and policy audiences provide a unique opportunity to better address development needs. Cultivating more in-depth conversations about research and evaluation improves the dialogue among policymakers, researchers, evaluators and program designers. This, in turn, facilitates improved program design, more informed results and more evidence-based policy recommendations.
Better research and evaluation outcomes can improve lives in lasting ways. And, the launch of “R&E Search for Evidence” provides a public forum dedicated to promoting a culture of generating and using evidence to make those improvements a reality.
