The African Institute for Development Policy (AFIDEP) focuses on enabling policymakers to effectively access and use evidence in policy formulation and operationalization. This grant will support AFIDEP to work in partnership with the African Academies of Science (AAS) to enable AAS’s scholars to support evidence-informed policymaking. Together, AFIDEP and AAS will support scholars to both improve their engagement with government officials to apply scientific evidence and innovation into policy decisions, and also to champion the institutionalized use of evidence in government decision making in East and West Africa.
