Partnership for Economic Policy (PEP) launches a new initiative for Strengthening Impact Evaluation Capacities for Development (SIECD) in East and West Africa to strengthen experimental Impact Evaluation (IE) capacities among experienced researchers and within governments in East and West Africa. It also aims to increase the demand for rigorous evaluations from these governments.

The SIECD initiative will enhance the technical skills of in-country PEP alumni and other senior local researchers in conducting IE research in an autonomous manner. It will target governments to boost their capacities in commissioning and implementing sound IEs that can inform decisions on local priority issues.
