The two-day workshop was focused on issues related to measuring intermediate and final outcomes for nutrition and child development programs. Researchers shared common patterns of variation and brainstormed about what works, with special attention on outcomes for infants during the first 1,000 days of life. Experts in the field provided guidance about choosing domains and instruments in the context of alternative interventions and settings, and trade-offs in terms of fieldwork administration and logistics.
The first day focused on research, experiences, and challenges in measuring early childhood development outcomes. The second day focused on nutrition outcomes and costing procedures, and participants discussed future directions for measurement of early childhood development and nutrition outcomes. Presentations and further information are available in Presentations tab.
The workshop was specifically designed for SIEF-supported impact evaluation researchers who are working on measuring early childhood development and nutrition outcomes. The 75 researchers who attended represented 10 different SIEF-supported impact evaluations in the early childhood development and nutrition field.
