Partnership with IDS – Centre for Development Impact
CDI is a new joint initiative that cements the IDS and Itad partnership.
The Centre for Development Impact will contribute to learning and innovation in the field of impact evaluation. The Centre aims to improve the assessment of impact on the poor, particularly through the use of appropriate, mixed method, and robust evaluation designs.
IDS brings a wide range of development research, teaching and knowledge management skills to the impact agenda, as well as a wide range of researchers and southern partners. Itad brings management experience with nearly 30 years of expertise in the evaluation field, alongside a range of technical networks and associates. Dr Chris Barnett from Itad is the Centre’s founding Director. CDI is hosting its first evaluation conference in March: Impact, Innovation and Learning: Towards a Research and Practice Agenda for the Future. See here for more information.
