The GDNet Legacy: Reflecting on the achievements, outcomes and learning of the GDNet programme, 2010 to 2014

GDNet was piloted in 1999 as the online presence for the Global Development Network (GDN) and as a key component of GDN’s capacity building and networking activities. The programme closes at the end of June 2014 and this publication seeks to record the GDNet story, share its lessons and review what it leaves behind. The document includes a discussion of GDNet's contribution to Southern research uptake, Critical Success Factors for research uptake identified from case studies of Research Into Use (RIU), two GDNet RIU case studies, and an examination of what has changed as a result of GDNet's capacity building.
