New report on evidence-based policy-making

Found in: Research and Resources

A new report from the Alliance for Useful Evidence looks at international approaches to promoting evidence-based policy-making, with particular reference to social policy. Examples are drawn from nations with developed economies similar to the UK, and there is also a review of international institutions, such as the EU, OECD and World Bank. Eight key lessons for building an evidence infrastructure to provide policy guidance across a broad range of social issues are outlined.

A new journal article in Environmental Science and Policy describes how ecosystem-based management is now advocated as an effective method for achieving sustainability. However, sustainable management of complex ecosystems requires clear understanding of uncertainty, and there has been little research into how scientific advice for policy-makers incorporates uncertainty, or what the best practices may be.

In July the Civil Service Quarterly was launched by Jeremy Heywood (Cabinet Secretary) and Rt Hon Oliver Letwin MP (Minister for Government Policy in the Cabinet Office). While not focused on Sustainable Development the blog will be of interest to those conducting policy-relevant research and seeking to better understand the policy-making process, challenges it faces and how research and evidence can inform policy-making. The Civil Service Quarterly is intended to help open up the Civil Service to greater collaboration and challenge, showcases excellence, and invites discussion.
