The International Initiative for Impact Evaluation (3ie) along with NORAD, Sightsavers and Population Services International has issued a request for proposals for systematic reviews to strengthen the international community’s capacity for evidence-based policy making.
Systematic reviews are an important way of ensuring that evidence can better inform policy and practice. They examine the existing evidence on a social or economic development intervention or program in low and middle income countries, drawing also on evidence from developed countries when pertinent.
3ie will fund up to 12 studies from this call but may fund fewer if insufficient proposals of adequate quality are received. As an approximate guide, the average budget of studies financed under the last call for proposals was US$75,000. Costs will vary depending on factors including the scope of the review and the methods of synthesis employed.
Grant applications should be submitted online by 5pm GMT, March 30th, 2012. For more information, visit this link.
