On 2 December 2020, Cabinet approved the National Policy Development Framework. This is a major milestone for the institutionalisation of evidence-based policy-making in South Africa. ‘Evidence’ is mentioned 116 times in the 33-page document and Appendix E ‘The Practice of Evidence-based policy-making’ outlines a range of institutional procedures to implement in order to enhance evidence-use. ACE compiled an input chapter on evidence-based policy-making in South Africa for the development of the framework. The chapter and associated resources for evidence-based policy-making can be accessed below.
