  • 3ie along with NORAD, Sightsavers and Population Services International is inviting proposals for systematic reviews to strengthen the international community’s capacity for evidence-based policy making. Systematic reviews examine the existing evidence on a social or economic development intervention or programme in low and middle income countries, drawing also on evidence from developed countries when pertinent. 3ie has developed a list of proposed systematic review questions, but is also accepting expressions of interest for other questions, provided they fall within 3ie’s remit. The proposed review questions address several policy relevant issues in a broad range of sectors like microfinance, health insurance, water and sanitation, agriculture, governance, and conservation. 3ie intends to fund up to 12 studies under this call. For more information and to submit a proposal, please go to: International Initiative for Impact Evaluation :: 3IE ::.

The past (almost) two years, Bill and I have been collecting data, combing through that data, and refining the numbers to ‘grade’ aid agencies and assess overall trends in aid practices. We waited until our paper passed peer review to release our findings. Rhetoric versus Reality: The Best and Worst of Aid Agency
