Initiatives

J-PAL initiatives concentrate funding and other resources around priority topics for which rigorous policy-relevant research is urgently needed. 

Each initiative identifies key gaps in the evidence; funds cutting-edge research; and supports policy engagement to share results and scale up effective programs.
