3ie was created to address the evaluation gap: the problem of insufficient production and use of evidence in designing and implementing policies and programmes.
As an organisation, we are committed to the values of accountability and transparency. We also believe in constantly reflecting and reviewing the benchmarks of our success. Our quarterly reports provide an overview on 3ie's performance against its strategic objectives by using a wide set of indicators. Here is a snapshot of 3ie’s performance on several of the key parameters as of March 2018. The maps on this page are updated on a real time basis.
