Training on Impact Evaluation for Evidence-Based Development

Dear Colleagues,

Devimpact Institute is organizing a Training on Impact Evaluation for Evidence-Based Development to be held in Nairobi Kenya.

Feb 5 - Feb 9, 2018 and
Feb 19 - Feb 23, 2018

Development programs and policies are typically designed to create change to the target beneficiaries. Whether or not these changes are actually achieved is a crucial public policy question but one that is not often examined. Impact evaluation assesses the changes that can be attributed to a particular intervention, such as a project, program or policy, both the intended ones, as well as ideally the unintended ones.

This course is designed to equip the participants with adequate skills to conduct rigorous impact evaluations for their interventions. The course covers all aspects of planning, designing and implementing an impact evaluation. By the end of the course the participants will be experts who can carry out impact assessment assignments for their organizations or as consultants.

By the end of this course the participants will be able to:
• Learn about theories and practices of impact evaluation
• Learn about evaluation problem: Attribution, selection and placement biases
• Understand IE designs: randomized, quasi and non-experimental
• Conduct a rigorous impact evaluation of a project
