Our impact is the change our evidence creates in the world. Our experience shows that when we work together with decision-makers, we can ensure that the evidence we generate is put to use through better programs and policies for the poor. Impact is why we do what we do – to build a world with more evidence and less poverty. These case studies illustrate this impact.
