Resources from the Negombo clinic

3ie is organizing in collaboration with ODI a series of communications for policy influence clinics for 3ie funded research teams. The objectives of these clinics are to invite project teams to share experiences on policy engagement around evaluation findings and to provide the space to discuss and refine their policy influence strategies. This was the third clinic organised for Asian projects, which included the researchers and counterparts from the implementing agencies, and was held in July 2012.

All of the presentations, handouts and resources that were referred to can be found below, categorised by the workshop sessions. Be sure to visit the full resource library for more.
