Evidence for Policy Design (EPoD) at the Center for International
Development at Harvard University is a research program that promotes
the use of rigorous evidence to inform the design of public policies in
low-income countries. They engage with governments and local organizations
to identify key questions in international development, use economic
theory to design policy responses and evaluate these via large
field-based experiments. Current research topics at EPoD include
governance, education, entrepreneurship, health, agriculture,
sustainable development, and access to finance.
EPoD is led by Harvard Kennedy School faculty, Professors Rohini Pande and Asim Ijaz Khwaja.
