CSEA participates in the Evidence 2018 Conference

CSEA’s Executive Director, Dr. Chukwuka Onyekwena, participated in the Evidence 2018 Conference, supported by the Africa Centre for Evidence, a research centre at the University of Johannesburg and secretariat to the Africa Evidence Network. Grounded in the themes ‘Engage, Understand, Impact’, the Evidence 2018 conference programme focused on four areas of priority in Africa: quality education, communicable diseases, climate resilience, and good governance. Specifically, Evidence2018 aimed to encourage, promote and showcase evidence-informed decision-making (EIDM) in Africa, thereby contributing to the development of effective public policies and efficient implementation of services, as well as joint learning on interventions that tackle poverty and equality. The conference took place from 25-28 September 2018 at the CSIR International Convention Centre in Pretoria, South Africa
