November 11–12, 2014
The International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI), the CGIAR Research Program on Policies, Institutions, and Markets (PIM), and the Standing Panel for Impact Assessment (SPIA) of the CGIAR’s Independent Science and Partnership Council held the workshop on Best Practice Methods for Assessing the Impact of Policy Oriented Research, on November 11–12, 2014, at IFPRI headquarters in Washington DC.
The workshop brought together about 50 participants, including evaluation experts from within CGIAR, the academic community, key development assistance agencies, donors, and developing country policymakers. It was structured around short presentations based on background papers that were made available before the event, panel presentations, and working group discussions. This format was designed to foster the expression of different perspectives on the current state and prospects of impact assessment of policy oriented research.
