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.
