WEDC research is focused on the impact that our research can have on the improvement of infrastructure and services, how they can be better delivered and, ultimately, on how they can improve the lives of under-served people.
Beyond the reports we produce for our clients, therefore, we engage seriously in the processes of outreach and dissemination of our research findings. We hold meetings, forums, conferences and workshops and we seek ways of publishing and disseminating our findings in both print and by using new technologies.
If you would like to find out more about WEDC’s work is this area, please contact Dr Lee Bosher.
