This diagnostic report analyses the political economy of policymaking and the evidence ecosystem in three sectors in Uganda: Humanitarian, Gender, and Family Planning (FP).  The report presents key opportunities and constraints related to the use of evidence in policymaking in each sector, and highlights the potential for SEDI to deliver politically smart interventions, which would increase the use of evidence by policymakers over the next four and a half years.

Strengthening Evidence Use for Development Impact (SEDI), was to have been a multi-year programme that worked on increasing the use of evidence by policy makers in Uganda, Ghana, and Pakistan. In partnership with country governments, this programme aimed to develop capacity and promote innovation in increasing evidence-informed decision making. SEDI was funded by UK’s Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO). The project closed after two years due to funding changes.
