Kadzamira: the conference will provide a platform for researchers

She added that the conference will inform the think tank’s decision-making in the development of the country.

“The conference will provide a platform where researchers in the country will avail the opportunity to articulate the intricacies of the research studies that have been conducted, with the hope that the research results will translate into something more tangible, such as evidence-based policy formulation,” said Kadzamira.
