AidData and affiliated researchers of the AidData Research Consortium have employed cutting-edge geospatial impact evaluation (GIE) methodologies to create new cost and time efficient ways to measure programmatic impact.
On July 15th, USAID will host a webinar where AidData researchers will highlight how this new innovative methodology is being employed to evaluate program interventions. The presentation will include case examples from:
- USAID: Measuring the effectiveness of a USAID-sponsored land tenure program in Ecuador.
- KfW (German Development Bank): Measuring forest cover changes resulting from the KfW Indigenous Lands Project, which demarcated indigenous community lands in Brazil’s Amazon region.
- World Bank: Estimating the treatment effects of a large World Bank-funded effort to combat malaria in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
The AidData Center for Development Policy is a collaborative initiative between the College of William & Mary, Brigham Young University, Development Gateway, the University of Texas-Austin, and Esri, that makes targeted, coordinated aid information and tools more accessible and usable to a wide range of stakeholders. AidData is also a Higher Education Solutions Network (HESN) partner with USAID’s Global Development Lab.
