CAF - Development Bank of Latin America - Directorate of Impact Evaluation and Policy Learning (DEIAP)
The Department of Impact Evaluation and Policy Learning (DEIAP) at CAF – Development Bank of Latin America – promotes the use of rigorous evidence in policy-making by leveraging human and financial resources to conduct impact evaluations of development programs with public and private non-for profit organizations in Latin America. DEIAP also brings rigorous evidence closer to policy-makers and supports institutional capacity-building in monitoring and evaluation.
Since its creation in 2013, DEIAP has completed 17 randomized control trials and currently handles over 30 evaluations in collaboration with external academics and implementing agencies. DEIAP’s current focus is on evaluating initiatives that improve the delivery of public services (as opposed to policies themselves), with the aim of encouraging a culture of learning within public institutions.Institutional Representative: Federico Ortega
