VakaYiko activities in Ghana are led by the Ghana Information Network for Knowledge Sharing (GINKS), which is partnering with the Parliament of Ghana on a training programme for evidence-informed policy making (EIPM). This review exercise aims to build an understanding of how parliamentarians obtain information to make decisions. Specifically, the review sought to address the following points and questions:
- General organizational description of how Members of Parliament obtain information for decision-making
- Description of the relevant departments that support decision-making (number of staff disaggregated by gender, positions and roles; reporting lines; contact persons and details; etc.)
- Descriptive analysis of the training unit and their current training offerings
- Discussion of whether and how training in EIPM can be integrated into departments/training units based on the descriptive analysis
