From Evidence into Action looks at various issues relating to social policy in South Africa and has a particular focus on the ‘how to’ of evidence-based policy-making. In this issue we look at early childhood development (ECD) and why it is so important for the future of our country. We speak to deputy representative of UNICEF in South Africa, George Laryea-Adjei, and learn more about ECD policy processes and resource allocation – and where there are gaps. Our case study compares ECD with that of another important policy, the Child Support Grant (CSG), and provides a list of important elements which should be included in the policy-making process. We present ome helpful tips on impact evaluations as well and, as always, a variety of useful resources.
