This support structure could be responsible for actions 4.1 to 4.3:
Action 4.1: Synthesise existing global and self-generated evidence.
Action 4.2: Convert evidence into simple and user-friendly formats.
Action 4.3: Provide practical support and tools for RIE initiation and implementation.
A support structure should be set up to support both practitioners and decision-makers in GDC along the cycle of evidence generation and take-up. We propose to build up this support structure as a cooperative model. In such a model, existing decentralised structures in the IOs and CSOs would be further strengthened where they are economical and necessary and evidence needs could be identified more easily. At the same time, a central structure could (a) coordinate efforts, (b) promote inter-organisational learning, (c) provide advice to those organisations that do not have support units themselves, and (d) serve as a point of contact for BMZ. Such a structure could build on experiences at DIE and DEval.
Please see our report for more information on actions 4.1 to 4.3.
