This webinar will examine evidence based policy (EBP) development.
EBP is an approach that helps decision makers develop well-informed decisions about policies, programs, and projects by putting the best available evidence from research at the heart of policy development and implementation.
EBP has become popular among a range of policy communities, those within government agencies, research organizations, and think-tanks. EBP is a discourse or set of methods which informs the processes by which policies are formulated, rather than aiming to affect the eventual goals of the policy. It advocates a more rational, rigorous, and systematic approach, and moves beyond traditional notions of research to adopt a broader understanding.
