J‑PAL Amérique Latine et Caraïbes
J-PAL Latin America & the Caribbean (LAC) is a not for profit research center that works alongside governments and NGOs in Latin America and the Caribbean to identify and promote the most effective programs and policies in the region. With the help of our research, training, and policy teams, our network of affiliated professors measure the impact of these programs and policies through randomized evaluations that become critical inputs for influencing public policy.
Curso Avanzado en Métodos de Inferencia Experimental y Cuasi-Experimental para la Evaluación de Impacto
El Curso Avanzado en Métodos de Inferencia Experimental y Cuasi-Experimental para la Evaluación de Impacto ofrece una introducción rigurosa tanto a los métodos clásicos como al desarrollo metodológico reciente sobre análisis e interpretación de diseños experimentales y cuasi-experimentales aplicados en la investigación de las ciencias sociales.
The new J-PAL Bulletin reviews 58 randomized evaluations from 28 low- and middle-income countries in Africa, Asia, and Latin America that tested programs designed to increase school enrollment and attendance. It includes cost-effectiveness analyses and provides practical lessons for policymakers.
Distributing water cisterns in northeast Brazil led to fewer requests for private benefits from local politicians and fewer votes for incumbent mayors, who typically have more resources to engage in clientelism. Marco Gonzalez-Navarro and J-PAL's Latin America & Caribbean office are now working with the Climate Policy Initiative to support the Ministry of Social Development to design and implement an evaluation of the second deployment of cisterns.
Marco Gonzalez-Navarro studies the impact of economic vulnerability on citizens’ willingness to engage in clientelism with local politicians. In our interview, he describes early influences on his research interests and how a book about behavioral economics saved an evaluation in Brazil from derailment.
Il y a 138 évaluations aléatoires menées par nos professeurs affiliés dans 17 pays en Amérique latine et Caraïbes.

- Teachers work hard every day to help kids learn - but sometimes, children who can't keep up get left behind. What if we helped teachers customize lessons to each student's learning level? The short answer: When done right, it works. The Teaching at the Right Level approach, led by Pratham in India, has been so successful that we're working with Pratham and partners like USAID to help adapt it to a new context: Zambia. Learn more about how Teaching at the Right Level works - and tag a dedicated educator you know below. https://www.povertyactionlab.org/scale-ups/remedial-education. 1 day 7 hours ago.
- What have we learned about taking innovative policies and programs to scale? For one thing, keep an open mind: It's hard to predict innovation. https://www.povertyactionlab.org/blog/11-15-17/when-do-innovation-and-evidence-change-lives. (Know an innovator who can relate?

- Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab (J-PAL) a ajouté un évènement. Although health outcomes in less developed countries are improving, many poor people around the world still do not benefit from essential health products. An estimated two-thirds of child deaths could be prevented with increased coverage of products such as vaccines, point-of-use water treatment, iron fortification, and insecticide-treated bednets. In this talk, Stanford's Pascaline Dupas will discuss how the design of subsidies matters for maximizing coverage of preventive health products, and will share recent evidence from randomized evaluations around the globe that point toward new approaches to preventive health. 4 days 8 hours ago.
