The Center for Global Development is hosting a discussion on new research on what facilitates and inhibits the use of impact evaluation products in policymaking decisions. The findings, which are based on an analysis of international organizations and country case studies in Mexico, Colombia, South Africa, Uganda, and the Philippines, highlight the need to see impact evaluations within a broader spectrum of tools available to support policymakers, ranging from evidence maps and rapid evaluations to formative/process evaluations and systematic reviews. The paper also sheds light on opportunities to learn from good practice in maximizing the prospects of evidence use.
