Knowledge, Evidence and Learning for Development (K4D)

start date
1 October 2016
end date
30 September 2021

The Knowledge, Evidence and Learning for Development Programme (K4D) supports the use of learning and evidence to improve the impact of development policy and programmes. It is funded by UK aid and is designed to assist the Department for International Development (DFID) and other UK government departments and partners to be innovative and responsive to rapidly changing and complex development challenges.  

K4D provides a Research Helpdesk for rapid response and complex emerging issues reports, facilitated ‘learning journeys’, and learning products to enhance learning and uptake. We offer a range of evidence and learning services, from standalone rapid research reports produced over a six day period, to year-long interdisciplinary, multi-stakeholder learning activities supported by evidence syntheses and multimedia products.  

All publicly available K4D Helpdesk Reports (rapid response and emerging issues) are available on K4D’s OpenDocs siteTo view multimedia resources, search the individual learning journeys or go to the learning products page.
