Guidance on Safeguarding in International Development Research
Everyone involved in the international development research chain, from research funders, planners and practitioners to local community members, has the right to be safe from harm.
To contribute to wider efforts across the international development sector being made to tackle this issue, UK funders of ODA research worked with UKCDR to develop a set of principles and best practice guidance on safeguarding to anticipate, mitigate and address potential and harms in the funding, design, delivery and dissemination of research.
This guidance is needed to ensure the highest safeguarding standards in the context of international development research, which presents specific situations in which harms that can occur are different to international development more broadly.
This guidance was prepared by Alex Balch, Surekha Garimella, Bintu Mansaray, Linnea Renton, Adriana Smith and Leona Vaughn.170420-UKCDR-Guidance-for-Safeguarding-in-International-Development-Research
