The field of impact evaluation is rapidly evolving and has become an essential tool for researchers and policymakers to assess the effectiveness of development programs and interventions. Early career researchers play a crucial role in contributing to this field, and it is imperative that they are equipped with the necessary knowledge and skills to conduct high-quality impact evaluations.

In light of this need, The Center for Effective Global Action (CEGA) in partnership with the Network of Impact Evaluation Researchers in Africa (NIERA) and the African Population and Health Research Center (APHRC) are organizing a two-day Impact Evaluation Training for early career researchers on 17th and 18th June, 2023 from 9AM - 4PM in Nairobi, Kenya

The training aims to provide an opportunity for participants to learn and apply theories and practices of impact evaluation, enhance their understanding of qualitative and quantitative methods, and strengthen the interpretation of evaluation findings. The training will be valuable to audiences interested in using rigorous IE methods to influence policies and programs.

a) Pre-train early career researchers on the fundamentals of impact evaluation, including its purpose, scope, and application in various sectors.

b) Introduce participants to qualitative and quantitative research methods used in impact evaluation and their appropriate utilization in different contexts.

c) Provide hands-on experience in designing and implementing impact evaluations, data collection and analysis, and interpretation of findings.

d) Foster a community of practice among participants, enabling them to engage in peer networking opportunities during and after the training.
