4th Edition of International School for Advanced Training

“Impact Evaluation of Development Policies: Concepts, Methods, Applications” June 27th - July 8th 2022

Objective

The School is designed to serve the needs of government and non-governmental organization officials, private professionals and practitioners, researchers and doctoral students with an interest in development and public policy evaluation. The objective is to provide participants with the skills and competencies for impact evaluations of development policies and programs. This will be achieved through a focus on both a “hands-on” approach to the discussion of specific examples of policies and programs, and also on the most recent analytical techniques.

Organization

The School focuses on three pillars:

  • CONCEPTS
    Identification of the policy framework (e.g. policy maker’s objectives, program beneficiaries, contextual factors).

  • METHODS
    Identification of the key instruments for assessing the policy’s impact. How to select the most suitable tool in light of the specific context and how to apply it.
  • APPLICATIONS
    The practice of the policy’s impact evaluation. How to carry out the evaluation exercise, useful data sources and data collection, software and main statistical packages. This will be mainly achieved in the hands on sessions in the afternoon.

The School will be held from 27th June to 8th July 2022 in the form of an on-line course (the possibility to attend the hands-on sessions in person will depend on the contemporary evolution of the pandemic). The morning sessions will provide an introduction to the topics, with practical applications to specific case studies in the field. The afternoon sessions will be devoted to technical, hands-on sessions. The course will include students’ assignments under supervision and tutorship.
