Organizations may join this effort to take the work of the Evidence Commission farther, faster. Our independent panel of commissioners is producing a report with recommendations (forthcoming in late January 2022) and pursuing a variety of pathways to influence (throughout 2022) to strengthen the use of evidence by decision-makers in addressing societal challenges, both in routine times and in future global crises.
