Alliance for Scaling Policy Impact through Research and Evidence (ASPIRE)


The Alliance for Scaling Policy Impact through Research and Evidence (ASPIRE) is a coalition of governments, philanthropic organizations, civil society groups, and research institutions hosted by J-PAL South Asia. ASPIRE is working to scale up effective programs that tackle some of India’s biggest development challenges.

We believe that long-term, multi-stakeholder partnerships are essential to solving systemic policy problems, and bring meaningful changes in the lives of people.

Our approach combines acquiring a deep understanding of the policy priorities of governments through engaged research, with extensive on-ground fieldwork to design policy solutions for driving impact at scale. 

About us

J-PAL South Asia and Veddis Foundation have more than a decade’s experience in employing evidence to achieve improved social outcomes.
