How We Work

The ultimate goal of AFIDEP’s work is to contribute to the realisation of sustainable socioeconomic development in sub-Saharan Africa. To do this, we synthesise and translate research and related evidence, package and enable utilisation of the evidence by decision-makers, and strengthen local  technical capacity in translation and use of research evidence. These activities serve to increase the role of research evidence in decision-making  processes in order to strengthen the capacity and commitment of political leaders, policymakers and programme managers in addressing Africa’s
development challenges.
