DFID Literature Review: "What is the evidence on the impact of research on international development?"

This DFID literature review analyses the impact of investments in research on international development. 

It examines the potential pathways by which research investment may lead to positive impacts, and describes the evidence base underlying each of these. It will assist decision makers in thinking about how investment in research can contribute to their principal objectives.

NOTE: The literature review has been updated and this is now version 1.1.

A reference description (ref 291) has been updated and the focus of Chapter 2, "Economic Growth", has been clarified.
