One of the results of the VakaYiko project in supporting evidence-informed policy making over recent years was support to Zimbabwe’s Ministry of Youth, Indigenisation and Economic Empowerment (MYIEE) to establish a Research and Policy Coordination Unit (RPCU). Building on from this work, between April 2016 and March
2017 the VakaYiko consortium helped the RPCU to strengthen its organizational capacity to support the use of evidence in youth policy. Over the course of three workshops staff at RPCU worked together to identify how knowledge, information and/or data might be used a resource to support pressing needs at the Ministry.
