Africa Evidence Week, a virtual event happening 9-13 September, 2019 and hosted by the Africa Evidence Network, got off to a great start yesterday.
This event, driven by African evidence-informed decision-making (EIDM) organisations showcasing their excellence in supporting evidence-use, will be appearing across a range of social media platforms (websites, webinars, YouTube, Twitter, and others).
Follow these links to catch up on what you missed yesterday, and
- Three blog posts about the involvement of the Parliament of Ghana in #AfricaEvidenceWeek, early childhood development centres in conflict-prone areas, and innovative African approaches to sharing evidence for use.
- Three short videos of a welcome message from senior AEN manager Siziwe Ngcwabe, an emerging EIDM leader, and an interview with Nigerian policy-makers.
- A learning exchange about whether evidence maps, repositories, and databases fit-for-policy-purposes.
- Resources shared by other organisations which include evidence synthesis webinars, WASH policy briefs, reports and stories of change, and an introduction to a network.
Today – Tuesday, 10 September – Precious Motha, Charity Chisoro, and Natalie Tannous of the Africa Centre for Evidence – the secretariat to the Africa Evidence Network – capture some of yesterday’s highlights and flag what’s coming up in the day ahead.
