World Bank DIME Initiative
Development Impact Evaluation (DIME) is a global program housed in the World Bank’s Development Research Group (DECRG). Its purpose is to increase the use of impact evaluation (IE) in the design and implementation of public policy and increase institutional capacity and motivation for evidence-based policy.
By doing so, DIME attempts to overcome the challenge to identify true cause-and-effect relations in policy programs. By linking researchers to policymakers and feeding results back into policies, DIME fosters systematic use of evidence which informs adoption, mid-course corrections, and scale-up of policies. DIME builds capacity while forming a wider community practice, through workshops and clinics with operational staff and government clients, joint research teams, active field coordination, as well as research products such as seminars, papers, and policy briefs.Institutional Representative: Arianna Legovini
