Each week we collect together highlights from across INASP’s work. Here are some of the things we communicated about over the past week.
- Staff Highlight
“We were delighted to see the Civil Service Training Centre pilot course launch in Accra, Ghana last week. There was plenty of lively discussion and reflection on the use of information in informing policy. The sessions also benefitted from the valuable insights of some key external speakers from the University of Ghana and CSIR.”
Emily Hayter, Programme Manager, Evidence-Informed Policy Making
