Frontiers: The Future of Land Evaluations – Policy Track

Event | Online

Impact evaluations are critical for understanding whether program and policy interventions are working, why, and for whom. In recent years, the land sector has made significant progress in using impact evaluations to build the evidence base for land tenure programs and improve policy and program effectiveness.

Please join us for a virtual convening, hosted by the Global Donor Working Group on Land, the Millennium Challenge Corporation, USAID, the World Bank, and New America, to discuss the policy and programming implications from the last decade of land impact evaluations.

We will bring together researchers and evaluators, policymakers, practitioners, and donors to discuss the implications of these impact evaluations on land tenure programs and policies, and identify open questions and data gaps that, if answered, could improve our understanding of what works, why, and for whom.

This event is supported by the USAID Integrated Natural Resource Management project.
