A workshop organized by PROFOR, CIFOR, IUCN and UK Aid on the first day of the Global Landscapes Forum in Warsaw, Poland.
Generating and disseminating knowledge is a core part of PROFOR's mission. We believe that smarter forest policy, infomed by solid evidence and timely analysis, can improve rural livelighoods, cut down unsustainable and illegal logging, spur investment in forests and trees, and reconcile different needs at the landscape level. But how do we get from analysis to impact? How can we design more useful policy solutions, improve knowledge uptake and achieve change? And how do we capture the attention of different audiences in a busy information landscape?
This workshop sought to tap the collective wisdom of participants at the Global Landscapes Forum, held in conjunction with the UN climate change talks in Warsaw, to improve the impact of our collective knowledge products.
Following short presentations, participants discussed in a “café” setting key questions including:
1. What makes knowledge generation and uptake successful?
2. What are some of the barriers to sharing knowledge about landscapes?
3. How well do we know what other people need to know?
4. What are some of the tools we can use to listen and design more effective knowledge products and pathways?
How to bridge the gap between science, policy and action
Friday, November 15, 2013 - 19:00
Participants in this workshop session discussed how to understand and adapt knowledge generation, sharing and communications to the needs of others, in order to design more useful policy solutions, improve knowledge uptake and achieve change.
