The replication window funds internal replication studies of impact evaluations of development interventions.
This funding mechanism aims to increase the incentives for conducting replication and to improve the quality of evidence available for programme and policy design. To this end, the replication window funds researchers to conduct replication studies, quality assures them, and promotes good practices around communication and data availability. Accepted replications are eligible for publication in the 3ie Replication Paper Series.
The Replication Programme has funded 23 replications through the four rounds of funding windows. To see the status of these studies, as well as 3ie’s in-house replication studies, please visit the replication studies status page.
Our most recent grant-making (replication window 4), which focused on financial services for the poor, is now closed for applications. To see the status of grants we awarded, please visit the replication studies status page.
