Why has this additional guidance been produced and who is it for?

UKCDR’s vision is to accelerate global development through the power of research and knowledge. To achieve this, we act as a generator and repository of good practice. Explore our resource hubs to discover resources that encourage best practice and mutual learning across the research for development sector. We currently have dedicated resource hubs on the following three topics: 

  • Equitable partnerships;
  • Research capacity strengthening (RCS); and
  • Safeguarding.

Our work on Safeguarding

Safeguarding is a high priority among UK funders following allegations of misconduct in the aid sector. Our work demonstrates a strong commitment by research funders to play a leadership role in setting a clear tone and high expectations around safeguarding in international development research, and to ensure harmonisation of safeguarding practices across the sector.
