About us

Started in 2007 at the Institute for Financial Management and Research (IFMR) in India, J-PAL South Asia seeks to improve the effectiveness of poverty programs by providing policymakers with clear scientific evidence.

In 2011, we were selected to host CLEAR South Asia, a global initiative coordinated by the World Bank’s Independent Evaluation Group. Under this initiative, we equip practitioners with the expertise to carry out rigorous evaluations through training courses, advisory services, joint research projects, and host a webinar series on fundamental topics in monitoring and evaluation.
