About the event

The What Works Global Summit (WWGS) is an international culture-shifting event, putting evidence at the heart of policy and practice. Presenters will share experiences from around the world about promoting policy uptake and measuring impact, knowledge translation, and uses of evidence.

There are many sessions that will discuss new evidence and global experiences in the use of generated evidence, best practices in knowledge translation, and improved institutional approaches to producing and using evidence. WWGS will host policymakers, programme managers and researchers from over 25 countries. Sessions organised will span a wide range of sectors including child and social welfare, education, health, humanitarian aid, crime and justice, environment and climate change and gender. There are also sessions on research and review methods.
