INGSA2024 – The Transformation Imperative:

Expanded Evidence for Inclusive Policies in Diverse Contexts

Kigali, Rwanda
1st May – 3rd May 2024

INGSA2024 – 300 people from 65 countries discussing the future of evidence-to-policy

The relationships between knowledge, policy, and society is shifting faster than ever before. INGSA2024 crackled with ideas and energy, bringing together experts, practitioners, academics, students, and change-makers around 3 key themes:


Large-scale transformations in our socio-ecological and socio-technical systems are now required to meet the complex global challenges we face. Knowledge and its use will underpin how successful system change is.

Expanded Evidence

Complex problems require us to transcend conventional definitions of evidence and expand our sources of knowledge across cultures, languages, demographies, geographies, ideologies, epistemic traditions, & geopolitical alliances.


The world is experiencing a crisis of trust. Diverse audiences must be included in the processes that affect them for social cohesion to be (re)built and maintained. Only together can we find common purpose and evolve our knowledge systems.
