On June 6, 2017, Evidence for Policy Design (EPoD) hosted a Global Dialogue event titled “Building Capacity to Act on Evidence: What Does It Take?” Fifty participants – policymakers from around the world, donors, and academics – convened at the Kennedy School for the Dialogue to identify and develop promising strategies and collaborations for strengthening government capacity to use evidence. This event presented insights largely drawn from the four-year Building Capacity to Use Research Evidence (BCURE) program led by EPoD, in collaboration with the Center for Economic Research in Pakistan (CERP) and IFMR LEAD with funding from UK Aid from the UK government.
