Learning about What Works: Impact Evaluation for Development

Thursday, May 31, 2007 - 2:00pm to 3:30pm

Please join InterAction and the Center for Global Development for "Learning about What Works: Impact Evaluation for Development," a discussion for InterAction member organizations about the new International Initiative for Impact Evaluation (3IE), a new entity which is intended to promote learning for social and economic development across the globe.

Accelerating social progress in low- and middle-income countries requires knowledge about what kinds of social programs are effective. Yet all too often, such basic knowledge is lacking because country governments and donor and implementing agencies dedicated to development have few incentives to start and sustain the impact evaluations that generate this important information. This event is designed to bring NGOs together to discuss: a) the perceived gap in learning about what works in social and economic development programs, b) the parameters of a solution to closing that gap, c) the progress that has been made on implementing a collective solution, namely the International Initiative for Impact Evaluation (3IE), and d) how NGOs can contribute to and benefit from this initiative in the future.

Panelists:
Ruth Levine (Center for Global Development), Blair Sachs (Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation), and Julio Frenk, (former Secretary of Health, Mexico)
Moderator: Todd Shelton (InterAction)

Time and Location: Thursday, May 31 from 2:00-3:30pm
