Partnership is at the heart of our work. We work side-by-side with our partners throughout the lifecycle of each project to generate strong evidence to help guide their real-world decisions.
Our partners come from government, nonprofits, academic institutions, foundations, and companies, ranging from multilateral institutions to small village savings and loan associations. What our partners have in common is an interest in learning what works and what doesn’t to guide their decisions and make a bigger impact.
We believe the most effective solutions are locally-grounded, which is why we have built a strong locally-led presence in 22 countries and why we continue to invest in building relationships with partners based in the countries where we work.
We bring not only extensive knowledge and experience to our partnerships, but also our values of integrity, accountability, and respect. We deeply value the strong long-term partnerships we have formed, and we are also excited to develop new partnerships in the countries where we operate.
Partners are a Central Part of our Model
What Our Partners Say
“IPA completed a large-scale randomized study for Living Goods showing the model is reducing child deaths by a staggering 27 percent. The result has been nothing short of transformational. The power and quality of research has persuaded policymakers, replication partners, and major funders to back a rapid scale-up of the approach. As a result, Living Goods’ reach has tripled to 5 million people served. Proof positive that IPA’s research can lead to disruptive change for those most in need.” - Chuck Slaughter, Founder of Living Goods
“The RECOVR panel survey was one of the examples where I think that we need to build on IPA’s experience in terms of rapidly generating evidence. The RECOVR panel survey in Colombia was key for the design of the policy response to the pandemic and designing our recovery policy.” - Daniel Gomez, National Planning Department, Colombia
“Large implementing organizations like BRAC partnered with an organization like IPA. We did the pilot, then we scaled it up. If we could do that for all the policy areas, we would have much broader impact.” - Asif Saleh, Executive Director of BRAC, speaking about the NORM Model
