The conference and training program-- Making Impact Evaluation Matter: Better Evidence for Effective Policies and Programmes --is focused on examining rigorous approaches to impact evaluation and sharing experience on how evaluations improve development policy and promote learning.
"Impact evaluation is a critical tool. It provides rigorous evidence on the impact of development programs on the lives of the poor; it helps the development community understand what works and what doesn't; and it can show how resources allocated to countries contribute to positive change," said
Impact evaluations provide empirical evidence showing whether development actions result in measurable impact and greater aid effectiveness. Impact evaluations answer the fundamental question: what would have happened to beneficiaries if they had not received the action? They can, therefore, assess the impact attributed to a particular project, program, or policy.
"Good evidence enlightens judgment and provides a sound basis for decision-making. With impact evaluation, the objectives of government transparency and accountability become reality and do not remain mere slogans," said
The event will cover seven streams of discussion and more than 150 presentations of academic papers and impact evaluation case studies. Topics include infrastructure, as related to transport, energy, information and communication technology, urban development, and water; climate change and the environment; social development, including health, education, gender equity, and poverty; rural development, including agriculture and food security; and financial inclusion.
The conference and training program is being organized by
