What is Africa Evidence Week?

Africa Evidence Week (AfEW) was launched in 2019 as an Africa Evidence Network’s (AEN) initiative to take on a regional evidence week focusing on Africa. Initially conceived by the International Initiative for Impact Evaluation (3ie), evidence weeks have become a popular feature amongst the global evidence-informed decision-making (EIDM) community. This includes the London, Washington, and Delhi evidence weeks, a countrywide Ugandan evidence week, a continent-wide Latin American evidence week[1], a sectorial humanitarian evidence week[2], and a global evaluation evidence week[3]. In the past, some of these weeks have been largely face-to-face and in one physical location, others have been distributed across locations and have mixed online and offline events and content. A common aim for all evidence weeks is the advocacy for evidence and its use in decision-making.

Africa Evidence Week 2024 is a virtual celebration of African EIDM and the decision-makers who make it possible. AfEW 2024 will be a fully virtual collection of digital content shared from across Africa and is taking place from 19-23 August 2024.

Over 900 people from across Africa attended live webinar events hosted by fifteen organisations during the week. Videos were one of the most popular ways that organisations participated in Africa Evidence Week with twenty-five videos posted during the five days. Twitter conversations promoted the sharing of EIDM resources, such as reports and stories of change.
