Each year billions of dollars are spent on tackling global poverty. Development programs and policies are designed to build sustainable livelihoods and improve lives. But is there real evidence to show which programs work and why? Are government and donor policies based on concrete and credible evidence?
The Mind the Gap conference on impact evaluation will address these questions and offer possible solutions. The conference will take place in Cuernavaca, Mexico, June 15-17, 2011, and it's co-hosted by The International Initiative for Impact Evaluation (3ie), the National Institute of Public Health of Mexico (INSP), the Inter-American Development Bank (IADB), and the Center for Labor and Social Distributive Studies in coordination with the Impact Evaluation Network (CEDLAS-IEN).
