EVIDENCE 2018: Call for abstracts and bursary applications

EVIDENCE 2018 is a Regional Conference, organised by the Africa Evidence Network (AEN), which will take place from 25-28 September 2018 at the CSIR International Convention Centre in Pretoria, South Africa.

EVIDENCE 2018 will bring together about 350 participants from across Africa with an interest in evidence and its production and use in decision-making. This includes students, academics and researchers, practitioners and policy-makers from universities, NGOs, government and the private sector.  EVIDENCE 2018 is supported by the Africa Centre for Evidence, a research centre at the University of Johannesburg that serves as the secretariat to the Africa Evidence Network.

Grounded in the themes ‘Engage, Understand, Impact’, the EVIDENCE 2018 conference programme will focus on four areas of priority in Africa: quality education, communicable diseases, climate resilience, and good governance. This focus on current priorities aims to further encourage and promote EIDM in Africa, thereby contributing to the development of effective public policies, efficient implementation of services, as well as joint learning on interventions that tackle poverty and inequality in African countries.
