Demand-Driven Evidence: The Philippine Government in the Driver’s Seat
Since 2014, International Initiative for Impact Evaluation (3ie) and the Philippines’ National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA), with support from the Australian Department for Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT), have helped build capacity and demand among government departments for impact evaluations to inform decision-making on key policies and programs in the Philippines. As part of the program, they have supported evaluations of interventions implemented by the Philippine Department of Labor and Employment, the Department of Social Welfare and Development, and a series of judicial reforms undertaken by the Supreme Court.
On February 18, IPA Philippines Country Director <a href="/people/Nassreena-Sampaco-Baddiri">Nassreena Sampaco-Baddiri</a> presented in a webinar with 3ie, NEDA, and DFAT, as they shared what worked and how such partnerships can amplify evidence-informed decision-making, focussing primarily on the evaluation of livelihood programs.
