J‑PAL Southeast Asia
J-PAL Southeast Asia, which is based at the University of Indonesia, supports researchers undertaking randomized evaluations in the region; trains and builds the capacity of local researchers to conduct randomized evaluations; and disseminates research results and collaborates with policymakers to integrate findings into current and future development policies and programs.
Can communities play a role in strengthening service delivery? Does empowering citizens to engage in transparency and accountability activities lead to improvement in health outcomes? Join T4D researchers Dan Levy and Jessica Creighton on August 1 to learn more about this project.
International remittances are an important financial tool for many developing countries, and many organizations offer financial products or financial education services to help families manage the remittances they receive. Researchers provided families with financial products and financial education in the Philippines to test whether the two services influenced each other.
When resources are constrained, how can governments ensure that they are delivering social protection programs in the most cost-effective way? Researchers partnered with the Indonesian government to design and test how identification cards affected program outcomes. View a recording of Bambang Widianto and Rema Hanna discussing this research partnership and its policy implications.
Traffic is a significant concern in many rapidly developing and urbanizing countries, as it contributes to increased commute times, pollution, and fuel consumption. One solution to this challenge could be ride-sharing to reduce the number of cars on the road. In Malaysia and Singapore, researchers are partnering with a mobile ride-sharing service to test different pricing and information strategies to increase carpooling.
There are 48 ongoing and completed randomized evaluations in 10 countries in Southeast Asia.
