Moving from Knowledge to Action





Linking Knowledge with action was established at the outset of the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS) as a theme aimed at enhancing the impact of the program’s research efforts.The goal was to catalyze new and innovative high impact research amongst strategic partners in all CCAFS regions and research areas, and enhance their knowledge of social learning, gender transformative research, and other innovative approaches leading to measurable scale and impact. Linking Knowledge with Action works both ways – actions inform research as much as the knowledge generated through research informs actions. Research in this area   shows that there are some critical principles or foundations required in order to be successful in catalyzing research into actions for sustainable and equitable development on the ground.
