IDinsight

For Writing A Paper On Future Directions For Impact Evaluations

Overview
This grant will support one of three papers that the Global Development and Population Program is commissioning about the role of impact evaluations in informing development policy and programming. IDinsight has coordinated impact evaluations across Africa and Asia, and this paper will draw on the organization’s experience tailoring impact evaluation approaches to decision-making needs and constraints of program planners, in governments, non-governmental organizations and donor agencies. Together, the three papers will both inform the field of impact evaluation, as well as the strategy development for the Program's Evidence-Informed Policymaking sub-component.
