Evidence into policy

Tools for Evidence-Informed Policy Making

By 22/01/2011

INASP works with partners to support global research communication through innovation, networking and capacity strengthening. We focus on the needs of developing and emerging countries.

The second, five-year phase of INASP’s Programme for the Enhancement of Research Information (PERii), works with partners to support global research communication through knowledge exchange, network building and capacity strengthening. PERii consists of 5 key components: Evidence-Informed Policy Making (EIPM), ICT Training, Information Delivery, Library Development, and Publishing Support. The EIPM component aims to promote uptake of research evidence in the policy making process through enhancing the capacity of various actors to access and use information. As capacity strengthening is a key aim, we use local expertise and make sure our activities are sustainable. Through EIPM, we enable and support training, networking and advocacy for evidence-informed policy making.

In the following guide INASP provides examples of activities and programmes that can help you develop strategies to promote evidence informed policy making. These are by no means exhaustive but hopefully can begin to give you an insight into the various options available in this area.
