A collection of essays on how evidence can be used to create better policies and services, which improve people’s lives.
First, we need better evidence.
Second, we need better mapping of what is already known, and better use of past public funding.
Third, we need to do more to make evidence quickly and easily available to decision makers.
The fourth challenge, however, is to make it harder for evidence to be ignored.
As part of our work on the Alliance for Useful Evidence, this collection of essays details the work that is underway on the cutting edge of evidence and its uses.
