Research in this area at IFS is committed to identifying success and failures in interventions and to promoting best practice in evaluating and conducting interventions. In particular, the Centre will be a focal point for research on the impact of specific interventions in health, nutrition, skill acquisition, education, credit, insurance and labour. It will conduct evaluations of specific interventions in developing countries, provide support to institutions conducting evaluations, engage in advocacy on best practice in terms of evaluations and on the design of interventions itself.
