Development policy

The Centre for the Evaluation of Development Policies (EDePo) is a focal point for research on the impact of a range of specific interventions related to early child development, health, nutrition, skill acquisition and education, sanitation, credit and insurance, anti-poverty transfers, labour markets, consumption, and tax and benefits reforms in developing countries.

Work at the Centre is strongly grounded in economic theory and enriched by the development and use of innovative measurement tools and by collaboration with researchers from other disciplines. The Centre also provides support to institutions conducting evaluations and engages in advocacy on best practice in evaluations and on the design of interventions themselves.
