The Board of Directors and staff of the African Institute of Development Policy (AFIDEP) would like to congratulate our Director of Development Policy and Head of Malawi office, Professor Nyovani Madise, on her appointment by the UN Secretary General as one of 15 eminent global scientists to draft the 2023 Global Sustainable Development Report (GSDR).
The GSDR is a United Nations publication aiming to strengthen the science-policy interface at the High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development and it is produced every four years. The report will inform the follow-up and review of the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals.
The AFIDEP family is profoundly proud of this global recognition of a true Malawian scholar, mentor, leader, and champion of the role of research and evidence in transforming people’s lives in Africa.
AFIDEP is a pan-African research and policy institute established to institutionalise a culture of consistent use of evidence in public policy formulation and implementation across Africa, with a particular focus on optimising evidence use to accelerate achievement of the SDGs.
