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.
We are proud co-sponsors of the Evidence 2018 conference, the premier biennial regional conference focused on improving evidence-informed decision-making. 3ie will be offering sessions on strengthening evidence use in Uganda, gender and evidence, and measuring evidence use. With conference hosts, Africa Evidence Network, we will co-host a workshop on overcoming post-colonial barriers to networking between Franco- and Anglophone Africa, and another one continuing our regional dialogue on improving evidence production and use capacity development in Africa.
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.
