25.06.2020 | DEval Webinar: Leveraging Evidence for Effective Development Policy

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.
