02.07.2020 | DEval Webinar: Creating and using Knowledge for Policymaking in Africa

The outbreak of Covid-19 in late 2019 has changed and will continue to change societal, economic and political processes globally. As a consequence, the ongoing situation also poses new challenges in development cooperation. Yet, the crisis also highlights opportunities, as for instance in the fields of evidence-based development policy or digital collaboration.

The Department of Development Economics at the University of Goettingen would like to add to this burgeoning online academic community by providing a new format for policy and practice exchange – the Digital Development Dialogue (3D). The aim of this 3D seminar series is to bring together two speakers – one researcher and one policymaker/practitioner – to discuss related topics. Having a mixed audience of scholars, policymakers and students allows for evidence-based and policy-relevant discussions that we would love to sustain for much longer than the Covid19 crisis.

In the fourth webinar of the seminar series the Digital Development Dialogue (3D) initiated by the Department of Development Economics at the University of Göttingen, Amma Panin (World Bank) and John Asafu-Adjaye (ACET) will discuss the topic “Creating and using Knowledge for Policymaking in Africa”.
