Evidence-informed policymaking for rural transformation

India’s National Rural Livelihoods Mission has been working to reduce poverty by placing community participation and women’s collectives at the centre of change. More than three crore rural women have already been mobilised into self-help groups and the aim is to reach nine crore households in the coming years. Within South Asia and elsewhere, these models have also been a source of learning, with new lessons emerging from global experiences.

The World Bank, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the International Initiative for Impact Evaluation and DFID in partnership with the Ministry of Rural Development are organising a conference to learn from research evidence about the role of women’s collectives and community institutions in fostering social change and bringing about rural transformation.
