Team

On April 1, 2013, DIME became the ninth unit of the Development Research Group. Next to the core DIME team based in the World Bank headquarters in Washington, DC, DIME works with researchers in the Bank as well as entertaining many 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 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 Head of DIME at the World Bank. Arianna is responsible for developing a new institutional approach to use rigorous impact evaluation to improve Bank's operations and help governments improve the effectiveness of their policies by testing and scaling up implementation modalities that work. In this role, Arianna supports the coordination of several multi-country programs of evaluation in various sectors and overviews the implementation of a couple of hundreds analytical products. In 2005, 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 Bank system to monitor Bank results. Before joining the 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 is an economist from University of Maryland with twenty academic publications including journal articles and chapters in edited volumes.
