Online-Seminar: How evidence-informed is German development cooperation?

Is German development cooperation effective? Does it achieve the intended impact? Is it informed by the best scientific evidence?

In an online event on 23 February 2022 organised by the German Institute for Development Evaluation (DEval) the team discussed these questions and presented a research project on the implementation of rigorous impact evaluation (RIE) funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).
