What are the key ingredients for a successful/disastrous program/policy?

Impact evaluation studies inform Government agencies and donors of the level of impact each designed program or policy has on its beneficiaries.

MDRI has a group of experts with extensive experience in impact evaluation, especially in designing impact evaluation methodologies using randomization, discontinuity regression, Instrumental Variable method, score matching method and other state-of-the-art techniques. In addition to impact evaluation, our researchers provide in-depth analyses that answer critical questions such as “Why are the impacts differentiated across groups of beneficiaries?” and “What are the key ingredients for a successful/disastrous program/policy?”
