3ie working papers cover both conceptual issues related to impact evaluation and findings from specific studies or systematic reviews. These policy-relevant papers draw on rigorous evidence from impact evaluations and systematic reviews to offer insights, new analyses, findings, recommendations and learnings from 3ie’s grant-making practices. Our working papers focus on methods and offer technical guides to help advance understanding, design and use of rigorous and appropriate evaluations and reviews.
