WEBINAR SERIES | Evidence Capacities

 

The Africa Evidence Network secretariat is hosting a series of webinars that cover capacity development topics. The webinars will take place on the third Wednesday of every second month, from 14h00-15h15 hours (SAST), with asynchronous engagement on blog posting in-between. There are currently 12 proposed webinars in the series and the first two webinars took place during Africa Evidence Week 2021, including the first webinar launched on 14 September and the second on 15 September. The dates for the next three webinars are 17 November 2021, 19 January 2022, and 16 March 2022. Check back here regularly for the dates of webinars scheduled to take place from May 2022.

The objectives of the broader #EvidenceCapacitiesWebinar series are to:

  • share experiences and ideas that push our thinking on how we enhance capacity for evidence-use in Africa;
  • enhance connections that can lead to collaborations among AEN members to strengthen evidence capacities using evidence- and practice-informed approaches; and
  • for these discussions to be the basis for improving and illustrating the Africa Evidence Network's Manifesto on capacity development for evidence-use in Africa.

We want to use this webinar series as a tool to generate discussions within the evidence ecosystem in Africa about how capacities for evidence-informed decision-making should be developed. We hope then that you'll use this page to access each blog post and webinar or its recording and take the conversation further on LinkedIn with us. Should you have any questions or ideas about the series, please email ace@uj.ac.za.
