Evidence For Development

Evidence for Development (EfD) aims to reduce poverty through better use of development funding, including the systematic monitoring and evaluation of the impact of projects on the poor.

Founded 2005

  • Mission statement

    Our goal is to improve the quality of international development decisions, by transferring relevant skills to national government, non-government and other agencies. This involves work in the following core areas:

    • Capacity building: establishing strong local institutions that can independently collect and analyse information on household income and economies to guide development decisions We work with national institutions, local and international NGOs and with other teaching partners in the UK.

    • Research to guide policy and projects in rural and urban environments, focussing on micro-level assessment methods, best practices and improved tools for data collection and analysis. A major focus of this work is climate change, changes in agricultural practice and livelihood adaptation.

    • Technology: promoting open source, collaborative software development to ensure free access and on-going maintenance and enhancement of the analytical and modelling tools originated by Evidence for Development.

  • Aims

    • The collation, interpretation and public dissemination of information relating to factors that affect poverty levels and their impact on those in need.
