Capacity Building and Establishment of a Community of Practice for Researchers and Policymakers for Evidence Use in Environmental Policymaking iNigeria (alias EUEPiN) is part of larger project funded by the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation under the aegis of the African Institute for Development Policy (AFIDEP) in collaboration with the African Academy of Sciences (AAS) entitled ‘The initiative for Expanding Evidence Leadership in Africa’ (also known as Evidence Leaders in Africa (ELA)).

The ELA project seeks to expand the leadership of AAS scholars and scientists in the use of evidence in policy formulation and implementation by African governments. Specifically, the project hopes to:

Championing
EIDM

Increase the number of academic leaders championing Evidence-Informed Decision Making (EIDM) in Africa

Institutionalise
EIDM

Increase the number of government agencies in East and West Africa taking specific actions to institutionalise Evidence-Informed Decision Making (EIDM)

Deepen
EIDM

Deepen evidence and expand space for Evidence-Informed Decision Making (EIDM) learning in Africa.

Our Objectives

EUEPiN project aims to establish a formal forum for the interaction of evidence producers (researchers) and evidence users (policymakers) in order to provide a platform for capacity building and engagement for evidence-informed decision making (EIDM) and their implementation.

To obtain information on the knowledge and needs of evidence users (policymakers) for utilisation of scientific evidence in decision making on environmental management in Nigeria.

To curate information on the drivers of research agendas by evidence producers (researchers) and the experience of engagement or involvement of policymakers in such research.

To promote and sustain active and productive utilisation of demand-driven scientific evidence in decision making by policymakers through capacity building.

To establish a Community of Practice in order facilitate the network and exchange of knowledge, expertise and ideas between evidence users and producers for environmental management in Nigeria
