“Spaces for engagement” at the International Conference on Evidence-Informed Policy Making

The program  “Spaces for engagement: Using evidence to improve public decisions”, a GDNet initiative implemented in Latin America by the Center of Public Policies promoting Equity and Growth (CIPPEC), was presented at the International Conference on Evidence-Informed Policy Making, held in Ile-Ife, Nigeria on February 27-29, 2012.

Organized by the International Network for the Availability of Scientific Publications (INASP), the conference brought together researchers with an interest in the use of evidence in policy making, as well as decision makers from different policy making institutions in an effort to understand both the incentives which drive policy makers to look for research information and their capacity to find and evaluate it.

CIPPEC was invited by INASP to present the different strategies and lessons learned from this five-year program, aiming at strengthening the capacity of Latin American Policy Research Institutes (PRIs) in influencing public policies and promoting South-South collaboration between them and African and Asian organizations.
