This workshop, hosted by ieConnect for Impact Program, gathers together project teams, government officials, partners, and Impact Evaluation (IE) experts, with the following objectives:
- Develop a high-quality IE design and implementation plan for each project through targeted sessions.
- Enhance the technical capacity of workshop participants to design rigorous IEs through hands-on training in IE methods and management and use resulting evidence to make policy decisions.
- Gather and strengthen the community of practice on transport impact evaluations with practitioners, country representatives, researchers, partners, and management around topics that are of strategic importance for the sector.
- Bring participants up-to-date with the latest research and results through policy and ignite sessions on data systems, gender, urban mobility, rural roads, and energy and transport.
This workshop will mark the launch of Phase III of the ieConnect for Impact program.
About the ieConnect for Impact Program
The ieConnect for Impact program is a research program of transport impact evaluations (IEs) across 19 different countries (program brief). The program aims to generate evidence through the development of data systems and experimental and quasi-experimental evaluations that can transform the way we think of mobility as an economic force and at a scale that will substantially improve the evidence-base for policy making in transportation. The program currently has over 30 ongoing impact evaluations, across the thematic areas of urban mobility, transport corridors, road safety, gender, and rural roads.
The program is led by the World Bank’s Development Impact Evaluation (DIME) group and the Transport Global Practice, with research collaborations on World Bank projects and across Multilateral Development Banks and bilateral organizations. The program is funded with UK aid from the UK government. For a general introduction to DIME, see our brochure.
