Following the opening of the London office of the International Initiative for Impact Evaluation (3ie) at LIDC’s base in Gordon Square last autumn, a new monthly joint seminar series on the role of impact evaluation and systematic reviews in international development will start this month.   

3ie seeks to improve the lives of poor people in low- and middle-income countries by providing, and summarising, evidence of what works, when, why and for how much. 3ie responds to demands for better evidence, and aims to enhance development effectiveness by promoting better informed policies. 3ie finances high-quality impact evaluations and systematic reviews, in addition to conducting in-house reviews, supporting  quality impact evaluation through quality assurance services and advocating for evidence based policy in international development.


Regular seminar slot:

Seminars will be held on the afternoons of the fourth Wednesday of every month and will normally have two presenters and a discussant. The first of the new series will be on 26 January 2011, 12.30-14.00, at the London International Development Centre, Upper Meeting Room, 36 Gordon Square, London WC1H OPD:


Evaluating the impact of the Malawi Farm Input Subsidy. The seminar will be led by Professor Andrew Dorward (School of Oriental and African Studies), and chaired by Dr. Marie Gaarder (Deputy Director, 3ie).
