About 3ie

We offer grants for impact evaluation of development programmes in low and middle-income countries.

We fund studies that have rigorous evaluation designs, use innovative methodologies and are high in policy relevance.

What is impact evaluation?                             

Impact evaluation measures the net change in outcomes that can be attributed to a specific programme. It delves into the questions of what works, what does not, why and at what cost.
