Organized by the World Bank’s Russia Trust Fund for Financial Literacy and Education
In collaboration with DFID’s Financial Education Fund (FEF)
Purpose of the Workshop
Although there are now many innovations in financial education and capability enhancement programs there is only limited information and consensus on what works and what doesn’t. In part this is because there have been few rigorous evaluations of outcomes achieved. To address this gap in knowledge the Russian Financial Literacy and Education Trust Fund at the World Bank and DFID’s Financial Education Fund (FEF) have funded nearly two dozen impact evaluation studies and the World Bank is developing a methodological toolkit to guide practitioners in the design and undertaking of impact evaluations for a wide range of financial capability programs.
This two-day workshop will provide a review of the basic principles for monitoring and evaluation of these programs, provide an outline of the methodological toolkit being prepared and present 10-15 case studies selected from among the World Bank and FEF funded evaluations. The case studies will provide successful examples that illustrate key issues in the design, planning, methodological approaches and presentation of results. The program is designed to provide program managers and evaluation specialists the opportunity to learn from the recent work and to engage in discussion of the relevant issues with their peers.
