CALL FOR PROPOSALS: International Initiative for Impact Evaluation (3ie) Systematic Review Call 5
International Initiative for Impact Evaluation (3ie), in partnership with the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA), the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), and the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) is inviting proposals for systematic reviews to strengthen the international community's capacity for evidence-based policy making. This is the fifth call for proposals under 3ie's Systematic Reviews programme. Successful teams will be notified in October 2012.
For this call, 3ie along with CIDA, USAID and MCC have developed a list of 15 systematic review questions in the sectors of agriculture, infrastructure, business development, governance and education. These policy relevant questions look for answers on crucial aspects like the impact and effectiveness of development interventions, gender effects, barriers to efficacy of programmes, and the applicability of evidence to other contexts.
The following questions seem particularly relevant for CAPRi:
- 2. What are the gender effects of land inheritance reforms on agricultural outcomes (e.g. investment, yields, income etc.) and social outcomes?
- 3. What are the impacts of collective action in agriculture (such as cooperatives formation, working with farmer associations) in terms of effectiveness of agriculture interventions?
- 8. What are the impacts of changes to property rights and land policies (PRLP) on formalized tenure costs, land values, investments, access to credit and employment in urban and periurban areas?
- 13. What is the effectiveness of a) parental, b) familial and c) community support for student learning outcomes (e.g. community libraries, parental support of students at home, other forms of community engagement in reading instruction or practice) in developing countries?
- 14. What are effective community-level interventions in terms of achieving women exercising leadership at the community level and/or beyond?
Deadline: August 31, 2012
