Evidence Works 2016 is a private forum for senior government officials, to engage in dialogue and exchange about the policies and practices governments around the world are putting in place to promote the use of evidence and data in policymaking, to improve outcomes for citizens and communities.
The two day agenda will consist of plenary discussions and a series of breakout sessions that will allow participants to engage more deeply on specific topics and issues related to the use of evidence and data in policymaking. The gathering will offer a unique opportunity for a diverse group of senior-level government officials and policymakers to network and lay the foundation for an ongoing global dialogue around evidence. Delegates will be attending from over 40 countries, across Africa, Asia, Latin America, North America, Europe, Australasia.
Why a global forum for government on evidence?
There is growing recognition that in addition to creating technical capacity, a government’s organizational processes and practices play an influential role in promoting the use of evidence and data. The forum is an opportunity for government to share experiences, including challenges, solutions and lessons learnt in establishing strategic approaches for promoting evidence-informed policymaking.
This event is organized in partnership with Nesta and Results for All/Results for America, with support from The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation.
Please note that attendance at Evidence Works 2016 is by invitation only.
Reports from the event including videos and blogs will be available on our website in October.
