From March 3-5, IPA Philippines and Australia National University (ANU) will co-host three introductory impact evaluation workshops in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea. The workshops will aim to inform audiences from Australia's Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (on March 3); international organizations, NGOs and think tanks (on March 4); and Papua New Guinea government officials (on March 5). The overall objective of these workshops is to introduce impact evaluation processes and methods, with a focus on randomized evaluations, encouraging increased use of rigorous evidence in development policy-making and programming in Papua New Guinea. Speakers for all three workshops will include Peter Srouji and Yuna Liang (IPA), Farah Amalia (J-PAL), and Chris Hoy (ANU).
