THE ART AND SCIENCE OF USING EVIDENCE

We aim to advance the art and science of supporting evidence use, with a particular focus on evidence capacities, evidence communities and evidence synthesis. To these ends, we research and review: the practical experiences and craft knowledge of people across Africa; the evidence about what works for supporting evidence use, how and why; and the contexts in which evidence-informed decision-making takes place, including political analysis. We also contribute to the development of theory and methods about evidence use.
