Measuring Development is the Development Impact Group’s flagship annual conference organized in partnership with the Center for Effective Global Action (CEGA) at UC Berkeley and the Analytics and Tools Unit (DECAT) at the World Bank. In 2022, we were delighted to welcome a new sponsor, the University of Chicago's Development Innovation Lab (DIL). MeasureDev has a nine-year track record of featuring the frontier of academic research in measurement alongside its application to provide insights to urgent public policy problems. It convenes researchers, policy makers, and other decision makers to hasten the translation of innovations to practical use cases at scale. Each year the conference focuses on a different theme or sector; recent topics include the role of mobile data in global development research, emerging data and methods in global health research, data integration and data fusion, and crisis preparedness and response.
