Jana Kuhnt (DIE) and Kirsten Schüttler (Worldbank) present evidence on interventions to ease the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the livelihoods of displaced populations, in the short term during lockdowns and in the medium and longer term under remaining restrictions and changed economic structures.

In this seminar, Dr. Jörg Langbein (KfW) and Dr. Michael Weber (Worldbank) present on how the labour market crisis response can be organized during three phases: Assistance, Reorganization, and Resilience Building.

Robust evidence on the effects of health and pandemic control interventions can guide the cost-efficient and ‑effective use of funds such as the Emergency COVID-19 Support Programme.


Evidence Gap Maps (EGMs) depict high-quality evidence - or lack thereof - in a thematic area. Participants will learn about the opportunities and limitations associated with EGMs as well as relevance and implications for decision-makers.

Dr. Kathrin Demmler (GAIN) and Dr. Hanna Freudenreich (IGZEV)​​​​​​​ present effective interventions to increase food and nutrition security in LMICs as a response to Covid-19, and highlight impact pathways and specific adaptations in the context of the pandemic.


Online seminar: Creating and using Knowledge for Policymaking in Africa

02.07.2020, | Veranstalter: University of Goettingen

The aim of this 3D seminar series is to bring together two speakers – one researcher and one policymaker/practitioner – to discuss related topics. Having a mixed audience of scholars, policymakers and students allows for evidence-based and policy-relevant discussions that we would love to sustain for much longer than the Covid19 crisis.


Online seminar: Leveraging Evidence for Effective Development Policy

25.06.2020, | Veranstalter: University of Goettingen

In a online seminar initiated by the Department of Development Economics at the University of Göttingen, Howard White (Campbell Collaboration) and Jörg Faust (DEval) will discuss how to leverage evidence for effective development policy. The seminar is a part of the seminar series the Digital Development Dialogue (3D).

The online seminar consists of a master lecture by Emilie Duchamp, expert at iied in evaluation of adaptation to climate change in the countries of the Global South, with introduction and moderation by Dirk Hoffmann, of the FOCELAC project.

In a collaborative project with DEval, 3ie has mapped the evidence base of 275 studies — impact evaluations and systematic reviews — that address efforts to build peaceful and resilient societies in fragile contexts. In this seminar, the authors will present the key findings of the new evidence gap map (EGM) and share tips on how to use the EGM and its findings to improve peacebuilding programming and research.

Anna Schrimpf, executive director of J-PAL Europe, will give a presentation on how randomized impact evaluations can successfully be converted into evidence-based policy-making.
