Guidance, Tools, Research & Evidence

GADRRRES is committed to use the evidence generated by research to inform practice and policy decisions, and to capture the evidence generated from practice, to inform research and policy making.

Comprehensive School Safety Country Profiles

In 2017, we conducted the first global baseline survey of CSS policy in 65 countries. The results of each country's responses to the survey are summarized in a CSS Policy Country Profile.

Research into Action Briefs and Summaries

To support practitioners and policy makers understand the latest evidence from research, GADRRRES has partnered with researchers to produce Research into Action Briefs and Summaries. The briefs and summaries are concise literature reviews of research findings and best practices in discrete topic areas of relevance to program development and implementation. For practitioners and technical advisers. Summaries are a condensed version in plain language for practitioners.
