3ie staff will be leading discussions on community driven development, evidence from our work on water, sanitation and hygiene and on open data and research transparency at the Global Evidence and Implementation Summit 2018. The conference will bring together experts from across the world to talk about their experiences in generating and implementing evidence for better policy and practice.
3ie is excited to celebrate our 10th anniversary during our London Evidence Week conference on 7-8 November. On the first day, we are collaborating with DFID, one of our founding supporters and strongest advocates for rigorous evaluation evidence to improve lives. Throughout both days, we will feature panel discussions on varied topics including the importance of partnerships to produce policy-relevant evidence, social protection, education and the learning crisis, innovations in access to data for evaluations, implementation research, and more.
impactAFRICA, in partnershipwith the World Bank’s Strategic Impact Evaluation Fund will present online webinars monthly. These webinars will be conducted by global development experts and media strategists on sectors, including education, early childhood nutrition. They will underscore the importance of evidence-based policy-making for programmes that deliver results. While the webinar series was developed for journalists in Africa who cover these issues, they will also be useful for global students, development practitioners, policymakers and others who want to improve their knowledge of development issues and how to measure impact.
