Effective policy development is a complex process. This is particularly true in the case of water in which multiple water uses compete for priority. Within this context, evidence-based decision-making is essential to informed and appropriate water-related policy development. Incorporation of the most current research is an integral part of this process. However, researchers often struggle to have their findings considered in policy development. With various actors often involved in the process, who decides what factors should be considered? Furthermore, with political considerations often guiding policy, how can researchers translate their findings into policy? Bridging the gap between science and policy is essential in effective formulation.

The event is free and refreshments will be served. All are welcome. Please RSVP to contact@inweh.unu.edu
