Making science work for development

Pollination and International Development: What do we know, what are the challenges and what more can we do?

A UKCDS report highlighting the relevance of pollination to international development and identifying opportunities for improving development outcomes.

This report is the result of a three month project led by Thomas Timberlake, a pollination ecology PhD researcher from Bristol University, whilst on a three month work placement with the UK Collaborative on Development Sciences. It draws upon the experiences of a range of academics, funders and practitioners working across various disciplines with relevance to pollination and international development. It also incorporates some of the outcomes and points of discussion from a Pollination and International Development Webinar hosted by UKCDS on 26 January 2018. The project was supervised by Vicky Morgan (former UKCDS director) and benefitted from the valuable inputs of the whole UKCDS team.
