CAF-Development Bank for Latin America
The Development Bank of Latin America or Corporacion Andina de Fomento (CAF) supports sustainable development and regional integration in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC). CAF established its Impact Evaluation and Policy Learning Directorate (DEIAP) in late 2013 to promote the use of evidence to support policy design. DEIAP promotes learning from public policies and public management initiatives, and works with government-led initiatives financed both from CAF and other sources. DEIAP supports impact evaluations around four strategic areas, chosen for their importance to regional development: state capacity, public safety, social inclusion, and productivity. To date, DEIAP has been involved in more than twenty impact evaluations that have or are expected to inform policy decisions and CAF strategies.
