Any policy or programme that is designed to have a positive impact needs to be based on reliable evidence and should be rigorously evaluated. Because if we know what works, policymakers can ramp up effective programmes and achieve positive change at scale.

That is why Community Jameel supports evidence-based approaches to policymaking and decision-making in development.
