Public policy based on and infused with sound science can increase government accountability, enhance transparency, and deliver results.
Billions of dollars have been wasted through ineffective policies that support unproven programming, expend inefficient and duplicative effort, leave many behind, and ultimately fail to serve constituents. Evidence-informed policies can better achieve goals, promote inclusive programming, and reduce waste.
Studies have even found that using evidence increases support for the enactment of new policies.
Like so many human-driven systems, communication and trust are the bedrock of effective bi-directional relationships. One of the most effective ways to craft results-driven policies is by building connections directly with scientists.
