“The ACFID University Network: Research and Ethics Program focuses on supporting research ethics for researchers working in developing countries; and increasing collaboration between the NGO and university sector through the ACFID University Network.

“Undertaking and using research and evidence is key to informed and effective development work. This is true whether collecting evidence to reveal issues or generate new knowledge, enabling those without a voice to be visible and heard, supporting arguments about priorities and resourcing, galvanising action by decision makers or the public, or demonstrating what is working and what is not.”
