Peer-Learning Event

3ie with the support from the UK Department for International Development and the Hewlett Foundation hosted a peer-learning event to share lessons and results from impact evaluations of transparency and accountability initiatives in the extractives sector.

This one and a half day event held on 29-30 March 2017 at the 8th AfrEA international conference in Kampala, included donors, evaluators, academia, extractives experts and other stakeholders from Africa and beyond. This meeting was an excellent opportunity to learn from the experience of 3ie grantees conducting impact evaluations in different contexts including Ecuador, Ghana, India, Mozambique, Peru, Tanzania and Uganda.

Overview of the event

3ie-supported grantees presented early baseline results, including one team presenting final results from their impact evaluation in Tanzania. Teams gave an overview of the interventions, the relevance of this research, evaluation design and the challenges they have been encountering. External experts and other research team members provided feedback on how teams could improve their analysis or explore ways to understand the value for money and effectiveness of these interventions in real world settings.

A panel discussion chaired by Jyotsna Puri, head, Independent Evaluation Unit, Green Climate Fund, brought together experts in the sector from Royal Holloway, Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative, Montrose Africa, Adam Smith International and Natural Resource Governance Institute to discuss global initiatives and their organisation’s experience with increasing transparency in the governance of natural resources.
