Evidence-Informed Policymaking: New Evidence and Promising Practices

Organised by Results for Development, Results for All, Yale School of Management
Event type External Event
Location 1111 19th Street NW, Suite 700, Washington, DC
Start date 18 June 2018 1:30PM (EDT)
End date 3:30PM (EDT)

With the growing consensus that policymaking should be informed by evidence, efforts are multiplying to support evidence-informed policymaking (EIP) around the world. Results for Development, Yale’s School of Management, and Results for All have recently completed research projects to enhance our collective understanding of the actors and processes that bridge the gap between evidence and policymaking and to shed light on promising approaches to supporting EIP.

This event will provide an opportunity to share and discuss the findings from this research and foster a discussion about promising approaches and what the field needs – in terms of both research and practice.

This event is part of R4D’s 10th Anniversary Event Series, running throughout 2018 and focusing on the theme of working with local change agents for systems-wide impact in health, education and nutrition.
