Types of membership engagement

There are three broad areas of collaboration for all members:  

  1. Championing and promoting evidence;
  2. Contributing to the 3ie membership network; and
  3. Receiving services as a 3ie member.  

This model allows members to tailor their collaboration to their own strategic priorities. It also allows 3ie to focus on supporting our community of practice and increase our evaluation advocacy and support efforts while providing members with opportunities to leverage our network to promote impact evaluations, systematic reviews, mapping and building national M&E systems. 

Membership benefits

Participate in 3ie’s community of practice for evidence-informed decision-making. We organize opportunities, where participants share their experiences producing and using evidence to inform decision-making, discuss their membership priorities and contribute to the 3ie agenda. We also organize peer-learning events with member governments and other development agencies.

Commission a variety of 3ie services. Members can avail themselves of any of 3ie’s fee-based services, including our production and/or assuring the quality of an impact evaluation, systematic review or evidence gap map. They can also seek capacity development workshops or organize joint events. Visit our services page for examples and further details.

Promote your work through 3ie’s network. We will advertise events, jobs and your calls for funding through our website and monthly newsletter.
