The Strengthening Research and Knowledge Systems (SRKS) programme, is a five-year, £10.2m programme jointly funded by DFID and the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) and implemented by INASP between 2013 and 2018. The programme aims to increase sustainable (a) access to and (b) production of research literature in particular low income countries.
