CIF will support R4D in conducting scoping literature review and interviews with partner organizations and country stakeholders to a) better understand current country processes, b) identify other country experiences regionally/ globally that would provide good learning opportunities; c) explore existing approaches, tools, and resources on identified technical topics; d) refine identified topics through understanding of country demand, experiences, and gaps in knowledge. This will be essential to better recognize what guidance and/or tools would be useful in addressing gaps. It is critical to ensure that the way of possible engagement is of interest and importance for most of the participant countries, and can lead to fruitful exchanges and products.
