IFSD launches Community of Practice streams to share knowledge and strengthen capacity to respond to COVID-19
How the developing and emerging economies in Asia build back their economies determines the security, peace, and prosperity in the region and globally. Rebuilding after the Pandemic must also consider climate change – we cannot tackle multi-hazard crisis by acting in silos. As a small contribution towards strengthening recovery, IFSD has launched Community of Practice Initiatives (CPI) to targeting young, emerging and early career professionals. The four streams of CPI include: Health security, food security, water security, and climate security.
Please see IFSD Community of Practice Internship Framework for more details and how to apply.

Water from Warragamba is treated at 3 water filtration plants, each with slightly different processes. They may all cope slightly differently when challenged with cyanobacteria-impacted water. But the key processes for each include coagulation, filtration and disinfection. 13/21

Seminar on writing policy briefs to maximise research impact. https://twitter.com/Neupanekaustuv/status/1158928701179879425
International agriculture and development research has played a significant role in reducing poverty and promoting sustainable practices of natural resources management in the developing world. However, as independent research evidence highlights, the policy uptake of research in developing countries, regardless of whether the research is nationally driven or internationally supported, is dismally low. This is partly because policy actors and researchers often come from very different political, institutional and epistemological positions, which makes it difficult for the two groups of actors to interact meaningfully and make full use of the research outputs in policy improvement. There is also a limit of what a research work can do in the highly politicised process of policy making. More recently, the context of policy making, and the way policies shape practices, are also rapidly changing, with profound implications on ‘research to policy’ strategies. This presentation identifies five areas that are crucial to catalyze successful research-policy interface in international development. It also shows how research into ‘research-policy interface’ could enhance research systems which have a policy impact goal.
