Webinar: Evidence-based decision making and the use of evidence syntheses by the Canadian Federal government
Evidence synthesis via systematic literature reviews is increasingly being used by the Canadian federal government to support evidence-based decision making and policy development. A number of systematic literature reviews were conducted to address priority environmental science questions. Results from these reviews will be presented, as will how the evidence transfer occurred, and how the results have been used in decision making and policy development to date. This session will also explore, via panel discussion, the benefits and challenges encountered that may influence the use of contemporary evidence synthesis (i.e., adopting robust, CEE-level standards) in the Canadian federal government.
