  • To develop a high-quality impact evaluation design and implementation plan through clinics by bringing together a country/project delegation with impact evaluation experts.
  • To enhance the country/project delegation’s technical capacity to design and implement impact evaluation of IC reforms through hands-on training on methods and policies.
  • To create a CIC impact evaluation community of practice with donors, practitioners, country representatives, and WBG partners.
  • Project-specific concept notes or action plans (one per team). To facilitate a swift delivery of these, teams will be asked to provide drafts (outline + bullet points) prior to the workshop so that clinics are part of the ongoing work and teams can deliver final drafts before the holidays.
  • Increased awareness in the value of measuring programme impacts
  • Improved and decentralised Impact Evaluation skills in participating countries

The agenda is structured to provide a general overview of impact evaluation in the first day. The subsequent days will be focused on the different methodologies and analysis of case studies (methods and policy), to finally apply these concepts in each team’s evaluation projects (clinics).

  • The Policy sessions will share international evidence on investment climate reform interventions, including case studies of ongoing impact evaluations.
  • The Methods sessions will deliver general methodological training for teams to become informed consumers of impact evaluation. 
  • The Clinics are designed to facilitate a process of discussion for each country specific team to agree on the policy questions, and develop an initial design for the impact evaluation of their intervention with support from an impact evaluation expert and a sector specific expert. The program will continue to provide technical assistance to the countries for the implementation of these studies.

The aim is to bring to the workshop a team that has: (1) power of decision, (2) knowledge of the specific program or intervention the ministry is interested in evaluating, and (3) potential for taking responsibility for the implementation.  To meet this aim, the team composition would count on:

  • Country Head of the Delegation: Director level official responsible for policy in the specific areas of interest within the line ministry
  • Country Program or Project Manager or Coordinator
  • Country Statistician or Monitoring and Evaluation Specialist
  • WBG Task Team Leader (TTL)
  • WBG Researcher (CIC, DEC, DIME or external academic)
