The Centre of Excellence for Development Impact and Learning (CEDIL) is an academic consortium initiative supported by UK aid through DFID. The centre’s objective is to commission and implement impact evaluations, promote the uptake and use of evidence from impact evaluations, and develop and demonstrate new and innovative methodologies for impact evaluation and evidence accumulation.
Our executive director, Emmanuel Jimenez is part of CEDIL’s intellectual leadership team, along with other senior experts from Campbell Collaboration, EPPI-Centre, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and University College of London.
