New evaluation: ESRC/DIFD Joint Fund

We are excited to have been commissioned by the ESRC and DFID, in conjunction with LTS International, to undertake an impact evaluation of Phase 3 of the Joint Fund for Poverty Alleviation.

The Joint Fund was established in 2005, and Phase 3 began in 2012. Its objective is to fund excellent social science research which addresses the goal of reducing poverty among the poorest countries and people globally. We will be evaluating the impact of over 60 grants in a range of countries including Bangladesh, Ethiopia and Nepal. The evaluation will be completed in early 2021 and will use a mixed methods approach underpinned by a Theory of Change.
