A new evaluation paradigm that originated in academia is making inroads in policy circles. Policymakers have increasingly recognized the need to establish the impact of different government policies in terms of causality. However, until a few years ago,most of this type ofresearchwas conducted by researchers in developed countriesand primarily targeted academic audiences. While Latin America has witnessed an increase in the number of impact evaluations conducted in the region and led by local researchers, there is substantial room for improvement. This project develops several activities that are oriented towards enhancing capacities for impact evaluation in the region in the context of a joint collaboration between the Centro de Estudios Distributivos Laborales y Sociales (CEDLAS), at Universidad de la Plata, Argentina and Grupo de Analisis para el Desarrollo (GRADE), Peru.
