The Rural Development Institute at Selkirk College strives to provide information and analysis that is accessible to a wide audience outside of the scholastic community. With this goal in mind, the RDI has launched a series of Research and Knowledge Briefs. Research Briefs summarize research findings from RDI research. Knowledge Briefs present the most relevant research and data from government and academic sources.
There are a number of benefits to these Research and Knowledge Briefs: they allow for broad topics to be broken down to a concise and manageable size; they take existing research that is often extensive and complex and distill the most salient points; they appeal to a wide audience that may lack the willingness or expertise to hunt through vast amounts of research from different sources; and they allow for readers to easily tap in to specific areas of rural development interest by limiting the scope of individual reports.
