IEN aims to advance the state of knowledge and expertise regarding impact evaluation of different policies in the Latin America and the Caribbean region.

The Impact Evaluation Network initiative was first brought to the LACEA Committee in May 2007, with the purpose to create a forum where research and expertise on impact evaluations is discussed and exchanged. Over the previous years, numerous impact evaluation papers had been presented at LACEA meetings in the contributed sessions, or in the NIP meeting. Nevertheless, given the relevance of the topic and the increased importance of its application for Latin America and the Caribbean countries, LACEA considered necessary to generate a specific network.

 

The IMPACT EVALUATION NETWORK (IEN) at LACEA aims to promote impact evaluation methodologies, increase capacity building, and bridge research and policy in the region. IEN holds meetings each year with the purpose to have a forum where research and expertise on impact evaluations is discussed and exchanged.

LACEA has established itself as the leading association of economists interested in the problems of economic and social development in Latin America and the Caribbean. We have contributed to strengthening ties between the research community and economic decision makers in the region and we have fostered debate and dissemination of better economic and social policies based on economic research. Yet, during the last few years, we struggled to find a permanent sponsor, who would help us maintain these activities. Therefore, we kindly ask you to help us make LACEA financially sustainable for the years to come. Please take one minute to donate. Every contribution counts. Thank you!
