Demonstration of Tools and Knowledge Products for Evidence-based Trade Policymaking
Evidence-based policymaking implies a process of gathering, critically appraising and using high quality research and analytical evidence to inform policymaking, and assist in policy implementation and development. It aims to integrate research- and expert-based information with the experience and expertise of policymakers. While in many cases evidence is qualitative, it also increasingly involves data and results of quantitative analysis. These sessions therefore aim to introduce the sources and handling of data relevant for trade and investment policy as well as tools of analysis available online.
This event is being organized as part of the Fourth Asia-Pacific Trade and Investment Week, 2-6 November, 2015.
