Annual Report 2018 August, 2019
Our 2018 Annual Report shares what was phenomenal in building AFIDEP as a lead organisation in institutionalising a culture of evidence-informed policy formulation and implementation in Africa; how we made major strides in strengthening the capacity of governments to demand and use evidence in decision-making processes; and how we also expanded our work in strengthening the capacity of researchers in packaging and communicating evidence for use by policymakers.Read More
Annual Report 2017 December, 2018
In 2017, AFIDEP contributed to promoting the value of evidence in policy formulation and development planning in Africa. We worked with government officials in Malawi, Namibia, Zambia, Rwanda, Botswana, Zimbabwe and eSwatini to co-produce evidence on the prospects for harnessing the demographic dividend. This informed strategic changes in the way the countries highlighted investments in human capital development in their medium and long-term development strategies.
There was a major shift whereby we increased focus on strengthening capacity for evidence use at sub-national levels of government. We worked in partnership with the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) in six counties that account for over half of maternal deaths in Kenya to develop a performance monitoring and accountability system.
We further worked towards promoting institutionalisation and a culture of evidence-use in the public sector across Africa; and enhancement of the role of African parliaments in promoting democratic governance and accountability in service delivery and use of public resources.Read More

The Report shares some compelling examples of the impact that we are having in enabling African governments to put evidence at the centre of decision-making in their development efforts. The examples further demonstrate how our work is stimulating African governments to think differently in their approaches to enabling increased use of evidence in their work.Read More
