THE SOUTH AFRICAN GOVERNMENT CROSS-DEPARTMENTAL
COMMUNITY OF PRACTICE ON EVIDENCE

Date: January 2016 – December 2017
Led by: Ruth Stewart
ACE team: Promise Nduku
Funder: Unfunded
Portfolio: Evidence communities

In early 2016 we helped to create this informal group of senior government officials with an interest in evidence. We continued to play a role in the group, helping them to develop into a community of practice. Whilst the work was unfunded, and the group was informal, it was an exciting opportunity to help to build this important evidence community. The group’s meetings have come to an end in 2017 due to more formal developments in government taking forwards the shared evidence agenda.
