Impact Evaluation to Development Impact (i2i) is a new global platform building partnerships to expand the use of impact evaluation (IE) for evidence-based policy. Members work together to improve the effectiveness of development policies and empower policymakers to test innovations and scale-up solutions to their development problems. The i2i platform is managed by the Development Impact Evaluation (DIME) Unit. The United Kingdom's Department for International Development (DFID) is an i2i donor.
Development Impact Evaluation (DIME) is housed in the Research Group of the World Bank with a mandate to generate high-quality and operationally relevant impact evaluation research to transform development policy. DIME’s objectives are to increase the use of impact evaluation in the design and implementation of public policy, improve the quality of the World Bank’s operations, strengthen country institutions for evidence-based policy making, and generate knowledge in strategic development areas.
