On April 1, 2013, DIME became the ninth unit of the Development Research Group. Aside from the core DIME team based in the World Bank headquarters in Washington, DC, DIME works with researchers across the Bank as well as engaging collaborations with researchers from institutions around the world. Each DIME impact evaluaton is supported by an in-country field coordinator. Field coordinators are essential for the success of DIME's work. They supervise data collection, liaise with clients, and serve as our eyes and ears in the field. DIME also brings together experts from all over the world who provide the highest quality research, policy recommendations, and analysis based on impact evaluations.

Meet the DIME team and our impact evaluation experts.

Arianna Legovini

Arianna Legovini is the manager of the Development Impact Evaluation (DIME) unit in the research department of the World Bank Group. Arianna has dedicated the last decade to developing a new institutional approach to closing the gap between operations and research, building knowledge on mechanisms that explain policy success and using experiments to improve the effectiveness of government policies. In this role Arianna leads the development and implementation of a large research agenda across critical development areas, stimulating strong demand from clients and leveraging significant support from donor countries. Several multi-country programs of impact evaluation with global outreach are currently active in thematic areas ranging from productive sectors, to human development and gender, governance, fragility and conflict and to sectors relevant to the climate agenda. These programs account for several hundred distinct analytical products.

Previously, Arianna established the Africa Impact Evaluation Initiative for the Africa region of the World Bank. She also developed the Africa Results Monitoring System, the first World Bank system to monitor Bank results. Before joining the World Bank, Arianna was acting chief of the Poverty Unit at the Inter-American Development Bank, and coordinator of the Network of Inequality and Poverty of the Latin American and Caribbean Economic Association (LACEA). She conducted her PhD studies in economics at the University of Maryland and has several academic publications including journal articles and chapters in edited volumes.
