Science for Impact : Better Evidence for Better Decisions – The Dime Experience (English)

The Development Impact Evaluation (DIME) Group generates high-quality and operationally relevant data and research to transform development policy, help reduce extreme poverty, and secure shared prosperity. DIME partnered with the United Kingdom in 2013 to create a multidonor trust fund for impact evaluation and take DIME's model to scale. The fund is now cofinanced by the European Union (EU) and the Norwegian Agency for Development Co-operation (Norad). Funding for a programmatic approach focuses on three pillars: data & measurement; experimenting and learning; and policy influence. This report outlines program achievements from FY2013-19 and describes future plans for program implementation.
