Weekly Highlights from INASP – 7 April 2016



“The purpose of research evidence in development planning is to use the best evidence available to make development planning decisions. Most of the best evidence stems from research. But evidence-based development planning goes beyond research use and includes development expertise as well as target population’s preferences and values.”

Charles Sakyi, Executive Director, CEDEP at Policy Dialogue series, Kumasi, Ghana, 31 March, 2016
