This guide is a practical resource to assist Australian-based researchers and Australian and international development organisations. The guide is designed to support good practice for research partnerships with Churches in the Pacific, where the aim of the research is to generate evidence that influences policy...
Influencing policy must start with the understanding that opportunities to influence policy and make significant change occur infrequently and often unpredictably.
Organisations that do not have the ear of government or the popular backing or resources to obtain it must accept the vagaries of...

There is a consensus about the strategic importance of cities and urban areas for achieving a global transformation towards sustainability. While there is mounting interest in the types of qualities that increase the capacity of urban systems to attain deep transformations, empirical evidence about the...
In this paper, we provide a broader analysis of the impacts and value from agricultural mitigation research in New Zealand, with a focus on two particular Sustainable Land Management and Climate Change (SLMACC) research projects funded by the Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI).
This resource aims to shine a light on how qualitative methods are being used in health services and medical research contexts, and how they might be used more effectively.
The projects in this booklet show there is an extensive and practical body of knowledge on climate change and that this knowledge stems from some of the best and brightest of New Zealand's primary sector scientists.
