Understanding the organisational context for evidence-informed policy-making Understanding the organisational context for evidence-informed policy-making HOT

This is the first in a series of documents that have been developed as part of the VakaYiko Consortium project,  supporting the Department of Environmental Affairs (DEA) in South Africa as it embeds and enhances an evidence informed approach to policy-making.  This working paper presents ideas for discussion and debate; it describes the framework the team used to analyse how DEA’s internal structures and processes and the external policy environment in South Africa affect how its policy-makers source and use evidence.
