In the lead up to the Innovation Growth Lab's annual conference in June, Nesta's Giulio Quaggiotto and Shatha Alhashmi at the UAE Prime Ministers Office are keen to shine a light on Canada's commitment to experimental government. In their joint blog, they capture some of the interesting insights and lessons 'from the trenches' of Canadian government officials, that are proving to be pertinent across the globe for other governments interested in policy experimentation.

A collaboration between the Alliance for Useful Evidence and Results for All, an initiative of Results for America has produced a new report that shares interesting ideas and potential solutions from national governments across the globe to promoting the use of evidence and data in policymaking. This follows on from our highly successful Evidence Works 2016: A Global Forum for Government event in September 2016.
Catch up on our Evidence Works 2016 Global Forum, by watching some of the short videos here. We will be adding more videos in the coming weeks, so please visit the website to hear diverse views from our delegates.
