The WACIE Helpdesk is a partnership between 3ie’s WACIE program and IDinsight. The Helpdesk provides rapid evidence synthesis and translation to help policymakers in West Africa answer targeted policy questions and design effective and cost-efficient development programs. The Helpdesk also connects interested policymakers to additional resources, such as remote, telephone-based data collection or rapid-cycle program evaluations.
Helpdesk support is focused on the countries in the West African Economic and Monetary Union (WAEMU): Benin, Burkina Faso, Cote d’Ivoire, Guinea-Bissau, Mali, Niger, Senegal, and Togo. The Helpdesk is currently in its pilot phase and is staffed by the WACIE Secretariat in Cotonou and the IDinsight regional office in Dakar, Senegal, with engagement from the wider 3ie and IDinsight technical staff and other experts as needed.
