The Perspectives on Impact Evaluation: Approaches to Assessing Development Effectiveness Conference is co-hosted by the African Evaluation Association (AfrEA), the Networks of Networks on Impact Evaluation (NONIE) and the International Initiative for Impact Evaluation (3ie). The Conference serves as the Fifth AfrEA Conference, following on those held in Nairobi (1999 and 2002), Cape Town (Dec 2004) and Niamey (Jan 2007).  It is the first conference organized by the new International Initiative for Impact Evaluation (3ie), and will include activities to introduce 3ie to the evaluation and development communities. IPA President, Dean Karlan, sat on two panels: Impact Evaluation Design Clinic Panel, and Microfinance: What do we know? Lessons from Field Experiments.
