In this series of the No Hunger Radio, we explore Action Against Hunger’s research portfolio. Across four episodes, we discuss why research is critical to our work, how it informs our decisions, programmes and actions in the field, and what we bring to the table as a research partner.
We also explore a case study of our work in mental health research, as well as the uptake of our research in programmes and policies.
EPISODE 1: WHY RESEARCH?
In this introductory episode, we spoke to Ellyn Yakowenko, Associate Director of Research at Action Against Hunger’s US headquarters, to find out how research informs our work and development as an organisation.
EPISODE 2: STRENGTHS AND CHALLENGES
This week, we asked Ellyn to break down the strengths of Action Against Hunger’s research approach, as well as some of the barriers that our research teams face.
EPISODE 3: RESEARCH FOR PROGRAMMING
In this week’s episode, we discuss how our research projects are designed and implemented with the aim of using new evidence to improve operational programming. Featuring Pilar Cuellar and Jemima Khamadi.
EPISODE 4: RESEARCH UPTAKE
Our final episode looked at the importance of including a robust research uptake strategy in the research plan from the beginning, and what the implications can be for programming and policy.
(Please excuse the different sound quality in this episode – as it was produced during the COVID-19 lockdown, it was a low-tech, working-from-home episode!)
BONUS EPISODE: RESEARCH FOR NUTRITION
A special episode of the No Hunger Radio from the Research 4 Nutrition conference in Paris in November 2019, where researchers and practitioners gathered to discuss and share evidence on the treatment and prevention of undernutrition.
