As part of commemorating our 15 years, we have intensified efforts to uphold and advance our long-standing commitment to strengthening evidence use in development institutions. With this as the aim, we are joining forces with one of the foremost development organizations to bring together evidence leaders, operational experts, decision-makers and researchers to share, reflect, and come up with ways to address institutional barriers and promote learning.
