This brief shares reflections from two evidence diagnostic exercises (one in Uganda and the other in Pakistan) undertaken as part of the Strengthening Evidence Use for Development Impact (SEDI) programme, funded by the UK Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office. In Uganda the diagnostic was led by the Economic Policy Research Centre to understand how government of Uganda and its partners were using evidence during the transition from sector based planning to a new programmatic approach. The shift to a programme approach involved reconstituting sectors (Ministries, Departments and Agencies [MDAs]) into eighteen (18) programmes designated to deliver the country’s third National Development Plan (NDPIII). The diagnostic specifically focused on the Development Plan Implementation (DPI) Programme responsible for ensuring efficient and effective planning, budgeting and implementation of the entire Development Plan.
