After Africa Evidence Week in 2019, we are happy to announce Evidence 2020 Online. It’s the largest meeting on evidence use for decision making in Africa. A biennial gathering hosted by the Africa Evidence Network.
Evidence 2020 Online is happening from 23 – 25 September 2020 online. It will be the culmination of a number of collaborative workstreams prioritized by network members and facilitated by the Africa Evidence Network Secretariat. The event will lead to concrete outputs such as collaborative activities, funding applications, and position statements on priority issues in evidence-informed decision-making.
This platform is designed as a virtual working meeting that will foster collaboration, facilitate dialogue and advance thinking, practice and action to advance the use of evidence in decision-making across the continent.
As with previous Evidence events, Evidence 2020 Online takes into account all types of evidence to inform the full range of decisions, from understanding the problems, to evaluating the impacts of interventions, to solving those problems.
ACED members will be present at the event. Our Director, winner of the Africa Evidence Leadership Award 2020 is one of the speakers. He will make a keynote speech on Thursday September 24th.
