Making science work for development

Landscape analysis

Our Research Landscape analysis work aims to understand current trends and future priorities in research for development. Our members recognise that mapping and analysis is required to ensure the UK is investing in the right way to ensure maximum impact on development outcomes.


The activities take place across two areas:

  • Mapping, foresight and analysis on research landscapes and systems
  • Analysis of the UK's role in research for development

What we do:

UKCDS works with members and partners across the globe to:

  • Identify trends affecting the research for development landscape
  • Understand push and pull factors affecting research for development
  • Identify major funders and funding trends in thematic areas such as agriculture

UKCDS Outputs:

  • CGIAR mapping work to be published soon.
