What Works Global Summit (WWGS) 2016
The What Works Global Summit is one of the biggest global conferences on evidence which brings together experts from across the world to talk about their experience in using evidence in formulating better policies.
A large number of interesting topics were presented at these events. Sessions focused on new evidence and global experiences in generation and use of evidence, best practices in knowledge translation, and improved institutional approaches to producing and using evidence. Participants included policymakers, programme managers and researchers from over 25 countries. Sessions covered a wide range of sectors including child and social welfare, education, health, humanitarian aid, crime and justice, environment and climate change and gender. There were also sessions on research and review methods.
