About the webinars
SIEF partnered with Code for Africa and the International Center for Journalists to produce a webinar series to improve journalists’ understanding of key development issues being reported on in low-income countries, particularly sub-Saharan Africa and south Asia. These webinars provide journalists with background information to help them more effectively report on education, health, early childhood development and water and sanitation issues, using evidence from impact evaluation research. The webinars provide reporting resources and give participants the opportunity to ask questions.
