Community-driven development: using synthesised evidence to tell us what works for whom, why and how
This event, co-hosted with the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, convened development leaders to reflect on the current state of impact evaluation and offered diverse perspectives on its future to propose how we can learn more to improve policies and programmes.

These videos use a simple step-by-step approach for explaining theoretical concepts. The videos in this series explore various topics related to designing, implementing and using impact evaluations. A short quiz at the end of each lecture will help you assess your understanding of the subject covered in the video.
3ie are pleased to present a Video Lecture Series on impact evaluation. This series is a primer on impact evaluation for those wanting to learn the basics.

The 3ie-funded study by Mohanan et al. evaluated two programmes by Indian state governments that enabled pregnant women from poor households to access free maternity care at public or private hospitals. The researchers found that the Chiranjeevi Yojna in Gujarat or the Thayi Bhagya Yojana in Karnataka had no significant effect on institutional delivery rates or maternal health outcomes. In his foreword, Bill Gates says “ ...In Gujarat in western India, for example, a program to pay private doctors to offer hospital child-births to poor women failed to increase the number of hospital deliveries or reduce birth-related complications –because it never reached the poorest mothers. What this case showed is that good intentions need effective, targeted delivery systems to make a real difference. There is as much to learn from a health program that did not reach its goals as from one that did.”
