A new ARTF research program has recently been established to strengthen analysis and research and inform the ARTF’s strategic focus and work. The objective of the proposed ARTF Research and Analysis Program (RAP) is to facilitate and promote evidence-based policy-research and knowledge consolidation through project-based and selected sector-wide/thematic research. The RAP will cover two kinds of activities:
- ARTF project-based research, including impact evaluations and improvements in M&E; and
- Select sector-wide/cross-sectoral studies.
While the new RAP has not yet produced outputs, select studies and analysis from projects in the portfolio is made available on the website. The Resource Corridor Initiative is one of these.
