Refining the Planned Comparison approach to Research-in-Development
Research scientists from a range of institutions and projects based in Africa were hosted by the World Agroforestry Centre (ICRAF) in Nairobi from 29 to 31 March, 2017, for a lessons-learnt writeshop on the Planned Comparisons (PCs). This is an approach currently being refined for scaling research-in-development.
Researchers from ICRAF including from the DryDev, the IFAD funded Land Restoration project as well as the Trees for Food Security Phase 2 project gathered with the aim to take stock of lessons learnt so far and draft a paper based on evidence generated from their experience of implementing the PC’s and the key preliminary results. Present were also researchers from partner National Research Institutions in Rwanda (RAB), Uganda (NARO/NAFFORI), and Ethiopia (EIAR).
