Communication challenges in Africa

In this video from 2010, Eliya Zulu, Director of the African Institute for Development Policy (AFIDEP) describes some of the challenges of communicating development research across Africa.

He identifies three challenges:

(1) the fragmented nature of research knowledge,
(2) the weak capacity to translate knowledge, and
(3) researchers focusing too much on delivering evidence to donors, rather than ensuring the evidence is of high quality.
