November 3, 2020 - PEP hosted a webinar on “Designing and contextualising research to solve specific policy problems” as part of the What Works Global Summit (WWGS) 2020.
PEP believes that research must be conducted in full awareness of the local and policy contexts if it is to produce evidence that is relevant and useful for informing policy decisions.
In this session, Maria Laura Alzua, PEP’s Research Director for Experimental Research, and Marjorie Alain, PEP’s Director of Communications and Monitoring and Evaluation, discussed the organisation’s approach to contextualising research for policy use. Three PEP grant recipients – Guillermo Cruces, Levison Chiwaula and Sebastian Schäber – then presented and discussed their experiences in Argentina, Malawi and Guinea Bissau, respectively.
Prof. Jane Mariara, Executive Director of PEP, moderated the discussion.
