Our goal is that evidence is used to improve the lives of people living in poverty.
IPA’s strategy is to ensure that high-quality evidence does not stay on the shelf, but instead gets into the hands of those who need it, when they need it, as we support decision-makers to create better programs and policies that improve lives.
At its core, our policy influence strategy is driven by policymakers’ most pressing questions. We use a toolkit that goes beyond impact evaluations, putting local researchers and decision-makers at the center. We invest in localized data and evidence capacity to sustain learning.
The central goal of this work is to solve the last-mile problem of ensuring that decision-makers are equipped with evidence to implement effective programs and policies that reduce poverty and improve lives.
