Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, decision-makers have needed rapid access to evidence to inform policy responses. The crisis has highlighted the need to be responsive in generating and drawing on existing high-quality evidence, while dealing with high levels of uncertainty and difficult trade-offs. It has also highlighted the importance of learning from both global and local evidence.
The 2022 CEDIL conference will feature expert speakers from around the world. They will share experiences and lessons learned on generating and using evidence during a crisis. The conference will also be an opportunity to discuss innovative approaches, methods and themes that have gained importance during the pandemic – including evaluating complex development interventions, using big data and machine learning, and developing rigorous approaches for transferring evidence and applying learning across contexts.
The conference will be held entirely online and will be free to participants.
