New Impact Analysis Methods for ex post Impact Assessment of CGIAR, 2011

This review was commissioned by SPIA as a part of its mandate to capitalize on newly available data and methods and thereby conduct rigorous assessments on the ways in which agriculture can affect various indicators of well being, which include poverty, hunger, and food security. It aimed to (1) review and provide critical evaluation of previous empirical ex post impact assessments within the CGIAR; and (2) suggest options that could be used by the CGIAR in ex post identification of the poverty impacts of technological change and the pathways involved in these impacts.
