The Replication Programme aims to improve the quality of impact evaluation evidence used for policymaking. This programme funds replications of influential, innovative and controversial impact evaluations.
At a glance
The primary objective of the replication programme is to improve the quality of evidence available for development policymaking and programme design.
More specifically, the replication programme seeks to:
- Verify the findings, and examine the robustness of findings, in selected influential, innovative, or controversial impact evaluations of development interventions;
- Improve the incentives of researchers to conduct careful and responsible data analysis.
Accepted replications will be published on the 3ie website through the working paper series.
