Description Increased understanding and transparent use of bodies of evidence by policymakers.
No direct action is taken as a result of the evidence, but use of evidence becomes embedded in processes, systems and working culture.
Knowledge from robust evidence is used directly to inform policy or programme. Several roundtables were held to help bridge the gap between research and policy making on climate change in Kenya and to help decision-makers acknowledge the full body of evidence on climate change in the country.
The array of policymakers impacted by the reform — is its impact far reaching across actors? Impact of change, how large is the size of the reform for instrumental use it could eg be population reached? Is there a substantial change from previous practice?
How sustainable is the change in the use of evidence? With BCURE funding, the researchers worked directly with government technicians to create a Report Dashboard designed to serve as a one-stop shop for over 50 indicators deemed crucial for evaluating MGNREGA, an example of value generated through Embedded Use as illustrated above full case study here.
This tool saw wide instrumental use as well: The evidence map offered the department visual and easy access to evidence. Other policy stakeholders benefited from the lessons learnt from the pilot evidence map — an example of Embedded Use discussed in the table.
A range of public sector actors were invited to engage with the methodology Transparent Use. While many BCURE projects achieved positive development outcomes, even the less successful pilots have helped unpack some of the main challenges and barriers to evidence use.
One of the key lessons is that we need to better understand politics and incentive structures in government organisations when promoting evidence uptake. Even if individual or organisational capacity exists, evidence may remain unused if groups with sufficient bargaining power lack incentives to improve policy outcomes.
Promoting the use of evidence thus requires an in-depth understanding of the political economy, and a politically savvy implementation approach.
Furthermore, BCURE was more successful where it helped coordinate between the often large amount of existing research organisations and projects, rather than creating new structures or mechanisms. The examples and lessons from BCURE illustrate the variety of ways in which we can support the use of evidence by policymakers, and how this in turn can contribute to improved development outcomes.
We would love to hear from other organisations on how they are tackling the evidence use puzzle.

Oxfam’s organisational structure is smaller only one chairwomen is in charge of a number of trustees meaning there organisational structure is more simple because their a smaller company.
Oxfam is also an LTD which means it doesn’t include shareholders. Conservation audits also broadly consider issues regarding organisational structure, capacity, intra- and extra-programmatic relations, and funding.
There is a strong focus on extent of adherence to the best strategic design and management practices outlined in the WWF Standards for Conservation Project and Programme Management. Oxfam’s organizational structure is based on just making enough money to cover costs.
As you can see In the chart above everyone is working together to achieve a goal. Oxfam doesn’t have many head of departments as Tesco, because they have teams based at different places around world and all work together. RUAF Foundation.

Improving the health status of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples is a longstanding challenge for governments in Australia. While there have been improvements made in some areas since the s (notably in reducing high rates of infant mortality1) overall progress has been slow and inconsistent.
