EVIDENCE 2018: Conference registration is open

Registration is now open for the EVIDENCE 2018 Conference, taking place in September 25- 28 at the CSIR International Convention Centre in Pretoria, South Africa.

Who should attend?
All those interested in evidence, its production and use in decision-making. This includes people working in Africa and beyond, in governments, civil society, universities and the private sector.

Objectives
EVIDENCE 2018 aims to encourage, promote and showcase evidence-informed decision-making (EIDM) in Africa, thereby contributing to the development of effective public policies and efficient implementation of services, as well as joint learning on interventions that tackle poverty and equality. Together we will tackle some of the biggest priority areas facing the continent, identifying and unpacking evidence-informed solutions.

The objectives of the conference include the following:

  1. To grow our understanding of this important field by sharing learning and advancing discussions in how best to support evidence-informed decision-making in Africa;
  2. To increase engagement across the Africa Evidence Network and broader community, spanning the many divides that prevent scientists and decision-makers from working together, building relationships and moving forwards to our shared benefit; and
  3. To situate our evidence community as a global player in, and umbrella body for, evidence-informed decision-making in Africa.
