Nimble evaluations in international development

The last fifteen years have seen a revolution in the way applied economists have worked to generate evidence that can be of direct use to policy-makers, in developing and developed countries alike. In a session gathering people who have been at the forefront of this revolution in development economics, we discuss recent advances and attempts at further encouraging evidence-based policy-making, notably through the promotion of more ‘nimble’ evaluations.

Javier Guillot, Government of Colombia, Professor Dean Karlan, Northwestern University, Dr Johannes Haushofer, Princeton University and Dr Laura Litvine, BIT discuss nimble evaluations in international contexts at this session.
