3ie at USAID's Learning and Evidence Month 2024

Commitment to Evidence

We are excited to announce that USAID is all set to join forces with leading development institutions as a signatory to the Global Evidence Commitment (GEC). The GEC is a pledge to improve the evidence culture and use in development organizations. As the convenor of this pledge drawn up last year, 3ie has been privileged to facilitate our development partners and encourage more organizations to join us for mutual learning and support in making better use of rigorous evidence to improve the cost-effectiveness of projects.

Start Date: 02 May 2024 End Date: 02 May 2024

Join 3ie and other GEC signatories as we welcome USAID at the official signing as part of the opening session of the Agency Learning and Evidence Month in May.
