What our partners say about 3ie

What interventions work best and how is usually not possible to answer by intuition. The work of 3ie, its Development Evidence Portal, evidence gap maps, etc., has made such questions possible to answer. The biggest improvement comes from better learning and decisions about programs and approaches.
Bård Vegar Solhjell
Director General, Norad
Synthesizing evidence has become a crucial activity of 3ie, which is useful for decision-making in the policy realm where decision-makers are not only interested in concrete outcomes of a project but rather at a more aggregate level in knowing what the impact or outcome of an interventions has been.
Prof. Dr Jörg Faust
Director, DEval, and Chair, OECD/EvalNet
