This report distills research and experience on how different sectors currently define and use evidence in organizational decision-making. It explores topics such as what counts as evidence, how we make decisions (consciously or unconsciously), factors that can enable or hinder the use of evidence in decision-making, and the role of scientists and practitioners in fostering evidence-informed decision-making. The two associated knowledge briefs on overcoming biases and storytelling distill key insights from the report and offer practical tips and resources for conservation scientists and practitioners looking to better use evidence in conservation decision-making.
