3ie London Evidence Week 2017

3ie London Evidence Week 2017 is a series of public events focused on the importance of using evidence to inform how we address some of the biggest challenges we are facing in development.

On 8 November, 3ie is organising a one-day conference at the George Fox Room, Friends House, Euston Road. The one-day conference, ‘Evidence that matters for vulnerable and marginalised people in international development’ will have interesting panels on promoting systematic review evidence in decision-making, reaching vulnerable and marginalised populations in WASH and agriculture sectors and presentations on various topics relating to promoting evidence-informed policymaking. This is a free event and will be of great interest to researchers, academics and students who are based in London. To register, please visit: http://bit.ly/LEW2017/

Professor Charlotte Watts, DFID chief scientific advisor, will deliver the annual Howard White Lecture to open the one-day conference. As a renowned researcher in HIV and gender-based violence, her lecture will be very well suited to our theme.

3ie is also pleased to be coordinating our London Evidence Week events with partners who also have events the same week.
