Environment & Ecology / global risks
English term or phrase: evidence
as part of the expression "given the evidence" found at the beigining of the sentence to introduce a clause.
i am translating a text on global risks, from an academic journal, but my question is more general and I don't think the topic of the text should make a difference in this case.

mais notons que "evidence"pourrait recouvrir d'autres sens:

enquête / témoignages ....seul le reste de la phrase spécifique peut indiquer quelle traduction est la bonne
