Rigorous impact evaluations (IEs) can provide critical evidence and knowledge about the contribution of innovations and technologies to agricultural sector development. Yet this powerful tool remains underutilized, particularly in publicly funded programs.
Tegemeo Institute of Egerton University will host this seminar as a precursor to an IE training to be held in November, 2021. The presentations will provide concrete examples of how impact evaluations have informed decisions on program design and resulted to greater impacts and cost-effectiveness (greater value for development funds). Presenters will also provide tips on how to use impact evaluations to answer pertinent questions about the impact of interventions and their ability to reach the intended actors, and how to effectively convey project benefits to policy makers.
