Designing impact evaluations: different perspectives

This 3ie Working Paper series covers both conceptual issues related to impact evaluation and findings from specific studies or synthetic reviews. In this paper Robert Chambers, Dean Karlan, Martin Ravallion and Patricia Rogers  discuss specific methodological approaches to evaluating three hypothetical interventions - conditional cash transfer, infrastructure, and anti-corruption programme. This document formed part of the discussions at the 2009 Cairo Conference on ‘Perspectives on Impact Evaluation’ which aimed to work toward a consensus on impact evaluation design.
