Evaluation & Measurement

Evidence on what works and why is sparse in anti-corruption. Find guidance on how to improve evaluations and measurement tools to inform policy and programme design.

The U4’s thematic work on evaluation and measurement addresses the lack of credible, unbiased evidence on outcomes and impact of anti-corruption interventions, which means that policy and programme designs are not optimally informed. Understand how evaluations of anti-corruption projects, programmes and strategies can be improved and how to use measurement tools correctly.

Evaluating Three Stylised Interventions

Martin Ravaillon from the World Bank, along with the other panellists in a session of this conference, discusses evaluation designs for three stylised interventions: conditional cash transfers, a transport sector programme, and an anti-corruption commission. This paper records his responses, and elaborates a little on some points, including references to the literature. He begins with some general suggestions on the issues to think about at the outset of any evaluation. He then tries to illustrate these points with reference to the three stylised interventions.
