FTA features SRE publications in latest blog post

Apr, 2020

FTA features Sustainability Research Effectiveness research.

How do we assess research impact for learning and accountability? Does transdisciplinary research lead to more effective outcomes? The CGIAR’s Forest Trees and Agroforestry CGIAR Research Program recently published a blog that provides an overview of two of our latest articles that address these key questions.

The first article presents a detailed description of the Outcome Evaluation Approach, a method for assessing the relationship between research processes, outputs, and outcomes. This method uses an actor-centred Theory of Change as the analytical framework. The approach accounts for complexity by recognizing the role of other actors, systems context, and external processes in the change process.

The second article FTA features shares the findings of a comparative analysis of five FTA project evaluations. The five projects include:

  1. The Brazil Nut Project (timber harvest regulations in Peru)
  2. SWAMP (global wetlands research)
  3. Fire and Haze (Indonesia)
  4. GCS Forest Tenure Reform (global with focus in Peru)
  5. SUCCESS (agroforestry concessions in Peru)

The comparative analysis shares lessons from each of the five case studies. These lessons reflect on elements of project design that contribute to outcome realization.
