  2. World Bank • IEG • Current program of 1-2 studies a year, initially supported by DFID ( • Three completed so far, 3 underway • Aim is to provide policy-relevant rigorous studies • DIME (Development Impact Evaluation) • Research department (DEC) initiative to provide support to IE by operations • Provides technical support and some seed money, main costs of study to be part of the loan. Workshops are held on evaluation design for projects entering the program. (There is a separate weekly IE seminar series). • Plan to have meta-analyses: current areas of focus are conditional cash transfers, urban upgrading, early child development and education service delivery • Currently 122 studies are being supported by this initiative and a further 55 in the planning stage. Just over half of them (69) are experimental, the rest quasi-experimental
