Tags: EIPM, Policy,

In Zimbabwe, VakaYiko works with the Ministry of Industry and Commerce; The Ministry of Youth, Indigenisation and Economic Empowerment and the Parliament of Zimbabwe to improve the use of evidence in response to departmental priorities.
In order to enable a wider range of voices (including the media, civil society, academia and think tanks) to contribute to the policy-making process, VakaYiko will conduct policy dialogues (PD) and knowledge cafes (KC). PDs are organized together with the ministries, whereas KCs are conducted independently by VakaYiko consortium member ZeipNET (Zimbabwe Evidence Informed Policy Network) and/or in cooperation with the Parliament of Zimbabwe.
This document is a general strategy for PDs and KCs that will help guide the planning process and preparation of the events as well as the communication with partner ministries.
