Evidence 2016 is a Regional Conference organised by the Africa Evidence Network (AEN) that aims to encourage and promote evidence-informed decision-making (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.
The objectives of the conference include the following:
- To promote EIDM locally and in Africa;
- To share lessons learnt and explore opportunities for the application of EIDM in Africa; and
- To build a community of relevant institutions, organizations and professionals through the AEN to act as a Regional resource hub.
