ICFJ and Code for Africa have partnered with the World Bank’s Strategic Impact Evaluation Fund (http://www.worldbank.org/en/programs/…) to present monthly online webinars on development issues. These webinars were designed to help journalists applying to ICFJ’s impactAFRICA challenge understand many of the critical issues facing policy makers across the developing world.
The webinars, featuring experts on health, education, and early childhood nutrition, underscore the importance of evidence-based policy making for programs that deliver results. While the webinar series was developed for journalists in Africa who cover these issues, they will also be useful for students, development practitioners, policy makers and others who want to improve their knowledge of development issues and how to measure impact.
