The Africa Evidence Network secretariat is hosting a series of webinars that cover capacity development topics in preparation for Evidence 2023. The primary objective of the Evidence 2023 capacities webinar series is to create a platform for sharing experiences and ideas that push our thinking on how (approaches) we enhance capacity for evidence use in Africa. The secondary objective is to generate ideas on the implications of novel approaches for wider ecosystem strengthening efforts. The tertiary objective is for these discussions to be the basis for improving and illustrating the AEN's Manifesto on capacity development for evidence use in Africa.
Being curtain-raiser events for Evidence 2023, the webinar series will comprise of monthly sessions, each of which will run for 1 hour and 15 minutes, culminating in content and practice session during the main event. Some of the webinars will illuminate and illustrate innovative ways that the principles in the Manifesto are being engaged in our capacity development efforts, while others will explore implications of these novel approaches for addressing capacity needs of different ecosystem actors in Africa, for example, citizens, policy officers, researchers, funders, capacity development professionals, etc. Topics/themes of specific webinar session will be generated to help meet each of the objectives identified above.
We want to use this webinar series as a tool to generate discussions within the evidence ecosystem in Africa about how capacities for evidence-informed decision-making should be developed. We hope then that you'll use this page to access each blog post and webinar or its recording and take the conversation further on LinkedIn with us.
