The Dhaka Colloquium on Systematic Reviews in International Development brought together 130 leading researchers and policymakers from 31 countries.
As the movement for evidence-based development is gathering momentum, the important contribution of systematic reviews has come into sharp focus. By drawing on all existing evidence on a particular intervention or programme, systematic reviews can offer valuable lessons for policymakers and programme managers.
The Colloquium which was held from 10-14 December 2012 was hosted by BRAC University, in association with CIDA, 3ie and ICDDR-B, under the auspices of the Campbell Collaboration and International Development Coordinating Group. The conference was preceded by introductory and advanced workshops on systematic review production.
