2015 Annual Symposium on
15-16 September 2015,
Hotel Cambodiana, Phnom Penh
The DRF Symposium, held annually since 2008, is a key activity of the Cambodia Development Research Forum (DRF). The 2015 DRF Symposium theme “Building Research Capacity for Cambodia” is organised by a partnership of the Cambodia Development Resource Institute (CDRI) as coordinator of the DRF, and its DRF partners: Cambodia Economic Association (CEA), The Learning Institute (LI), National Institute of Public Health (NIPH), Royal University of Agriculture (RUA), Royal University of Phnom Penh (RUPP) and the Supreme National Economic Council (SNEC), with support from the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) of Canada.
The theme “Building Research Capacity for Cambodia” reflects an important role of education that drives economic growth in Cambodia and the education reform is underway. This highlights the need for policy-relevant research that both supports the information demands of decision and policymakers and draws attention to emerging challenges and opportunities as education reform evolves. However, the interface between research and policy making capacities is highly complex. Policymakers often regard research findings as untimely or only partly relevant, lacking in quality, impenetrable, ambiguous and contradictory. Bridging this gap requires investment in building the capacities of researchers to translate and communicate their findings and the abilities of policymakers to put research evidence to work.
