The Indian School of Public Policy (ISPP) is organizing a free workshop with Dr. Emmanuel (Manny) Jimenez on the topic 'Hard evidence for tough decisions: Evaluation in development policy'. Our Key Speaker is Dr. Emmanuel (Manny) Jimenez, Executive Director, The International Initiative on Impact Evaluation.
Now, perhaps more than ever, there is a strong case for the generation and use of evidence for decision-making in low and middle-income countries. The presentation will focus on the achievements and challenges of evaluating the attributable impact of development interventions. 3ie’s recent experience in evaluating programmes and projects in India will be highlighted.
