Use of evidence in peacebuilding and transitional development assistance
This inaugural edition of the 3ie evidence dialogues will focus on the role of evidence in the context of peacebuilding and transitional development assistance. It will include a brief presentation of findings from a new systematic review assessing the effects of interventions to promote social cohesion, followed by a discussion of the role and use of evidence in the sector. Panellists will address questions relating to the opportunities and challenges associated with evidence-informed decision making in the sector, including reflecting on current practice, how to build a culture of evidence use, and how to ensure existing evidence is easily available and new evidence addresses existing gaps.
