On today’s episode we are going to be looking at the challenges of evaluating research and communicating that information to decision makers. Development programmes and research generate lots of data and information and recommendations but what does that data mean? Was it rigorously obtained? How was it produced? And leading on from that how do we use this information to influence policy and future development programmes to make a bigger impact? Our guests are Megan Lloyd-Laney (@MeganLLoydLaney) of Comms Consult and Dr Tamsin Bradley of the University of Portsmouth.
