The interface between evidence and policy has never been so visible, nor debated, as it has during the pandemic. In 2021 INGSA hosted its biggest ever global conference on science advice to governments - INGSA2021 - Build Back Wiser: Knowledge, Policy, and Publics in Dialogue. The conference was a unique meeting point of global science advice and science diplomacy leaders and practitioners to interrogate the role that evidence plays in policy in some of our biggest common challenges.
Important to the outcome of the conference, was the INGSA2021 Viewpoints compendium, a collection of concise and compelling thinkpieces from many of the speakers and partners at the conference. This Viewpoints booklet is a critical addition to the literature, and a stocktake of where science advice is now, and where it needs to go from here.
Containing new and updated content, Viewpoints is now available in English and French.
