UC Berkeley’s CEGA is hosting this summit which may be of interest to many.
Recently, CEGA has expanded to begin working in West Africa, together with the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA) on Development Impact West Africa (DIWA). EASST, in partnership with NIERA and DIWA, will bring these networks together at the 2021 Africa Evidence Summit held on April 7-8, 2021 . This online event will showcase policy-relevant insights on poverty alleviation in East and West Africa from both local researchers and leading US-based researchers; and connect policy makers, researchers and practitioners to discuss evidence-informed policymaking in the region. Before the Summit, on April 6, NIERA will lead an optional training on the basics of Impact Evaluation for African academics.
