Learning Space

The Africa Evidence Network maintains an evidence-informed decision-making learning space that houses all content related to evidence-informed decision-making in Africa. Use this learning space to find tools and resources to support evidence-informed decision-making in Africa; read news, blogs, and newsletters about evidence-informed decision-making; find information about AEN initiatives to support evidence-informed decision-making like Africa Evidence Week or our Evidence conferences, or explore the African evidence-informed decision-making landscape by engaging with our landscape maps. This learning space should help you learn about, be informed by, connect with others in, and advocate for evidence-informed decision-making in Africa. If something is not working optimally, please let us know.
