COVID-19’s wide-ranging health and economic impacts have permeated across the world, and much of the research community has pivoted to respond. At IPA, we have launched a major effort—Research for Effective COVID-19 responses, or RECOVR, to support immediate response efforts and provide evidence to decision-makers working to mitigate the impacts of the crisis in the 22 countries where we work.
This webinar is part of IPA's RECOVR Webinar Series: Bringing Evidence to COVID-19 Policy Responses in the Global South. Together with our partners, we are using this series to rapidly share what we are learning with the policy and research community to support evidence-informed response efforts. More information about other events in the series is available here.
Globally, almost one-third of women report experiencing intimate partner violence (IPV) at some point in their lives. Nearly 40 percent of all homicides of women are committed by an intimate partner. Yet little is known about how to reduce IPV.
On June 6, researchers from IPA and J-PAL convened in London to discuss field research on what works to improve governance and address conflict and corruption in low-income countries. Participants offered practical lessons for policymakers, practitioners, donors, and others on designing and implementing more effective programs, and discussed how researchers and implementing organizations can partner to close knowledge gaps.
