International Initiative for Impact Evaluation (3Ie))

Unverified non-profit organisation

The International Initiative for Impact Evaluation (3ie) is incorporated in the United States as a non-profit organisation. The organisation seeks to improve the lives of poor people in low- and middle-income countries by providing, and summarising, evidence of what works, when, why and for how much. 3Ie’s collects evidence from synthetic reviews of existing evidence, updated as new evidence appears, and operates a grant programme, financing impact studies in low- and middle-income countries, and supports quality impact evaluation through its quality assurance services.

3Ie will launch a call for proposals in 2010, focused on specific sectors, themes (which could be cross-sectoral) and/or programmes. The objective is to stimulate a more demand-driven approach for impact evaluations, and to prioritize important knowledge gaps within certain developmental areas.
