for general operating support  
The African Institute for Development Policy (AFIDEP) is a pan-African nonprofit research and policy institute that works to bridge the gaps between research, policy, and practice in Africa. AFIDEP supports governments to consistently use robust evidence to inform policy formulation, resource allocation, and program implementation to accelerate the achievement of sustainable development goals (SDGs) and other national development goals. AFIDEP will strengthen institutional systems that facilitate evidence-informed decision making (EIDM); contribute to and expand the EIDM community of practice; generate and translate evidence to inform action on the SDGs; share best practices in promoting evidence use; and to internally strengthen institutional systems and processes to deliver its mandate. (Strategy: Evidence-Informed Policymaking)
for support of WEE macro work expansion  
As a pan-African research and policy organization, the African Institute for Development Policy (AFIDEP) promotes and enables the consistent use of evidence in policy, program, and investment decisions in Africa. Through its emerging Women’s Economic Empowerment (WEE) program, AFIDEP aims to stimulate and sustain structural and systemic change in macroeconomic policy, investments, and programming that promote socioeconomic gender equity. This planning grant will enable AFIDEP to undertake a landscaping study of the WEE macro field in Africa through consultations with stakeholders across the region, identify current gaps in policy and evidence, and understand how their evidence-driven advocacy can contribute to gender-responsive macroeconomic policies in the region.
