The webinars, along with the pre-Summit workshops, will enable dialogue around some of the most pertinent topics and issues facing the evidence and implementation sectors, and enable a global audience to hear from researchers, practitioners, leaders and policy makers involved in implementing evidence-based programs and practices.

There will be no charge for the webinars.  We welcome your early registration.

Perspectives on robust evidence and effective implementation from the global South: a conversation with J-PAL.


15 July 2020 - 5.00 to 6.00pm AEST

The Centre for Evidence and Implementation and Monash University are delighted to present the next webinar in the Evidence and Implementation Summit Virtual Series and warmly welcome you to a conversation with The Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab (J-PAL). This discussion will feature J-PAL leaders Shobini Mukerji, Executive Director of J-PAL South Asia, and Anna Kilpatrick, Deputy Executive Director at J-PAL Africa in conversation with CEI's Managing Director Mary Abdo. 

Some of the most dynamic innovation and effective practice in evidence and implementation is taking place in the diverse contexts of the global South. Backed by considerable investment, evidence and implementation ecosystems in South Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa are increasingly resilient with strong structural foundations, significant and growing capacity, and a complexity that the global movement has much to learn from. This dialogue will explore lessons for evidence and implementation from some of the world's innovation powerhouses and key emerging markets.   


In 2019 J-PAL co-founders Esther Duflo and Abhijit Banerjee, and long-time research affiliate Michael Kremer, won the Nobel Prize in Economics. The organisation is recognised as one of the world's foremost research institutions working to reduce global poverty by providing policymakers with clear scientific evidence on what works. 

Please join J-PAL's leaders as they explore what 'good evidence' means in their particular contexts, why and how policymakers should pay attention to evidence, knowledge translation in context, and best practices for scaling up. The session will consider how COVID-19 has changed the landscape for discovering, identifying and using good evidence in the context of the global South.
