The Evidence In Practice research project at the Yale School of Management, funded by the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, was conducted from January 2016 to January 2018 in order to better understand the conditions under which rigorous evidence can be effectively integrated into public policies and non-governmental organization (NGO) practices in the field of international development.

This website contains the central outputs of our research: eight paired case studies from four countries—Ghana, South Africa, Mexico, and India—as well as a cross-cutting analysis, called “Summary + Findings.” As an introduction to our research, we recommend that you begin with Summary + Findings, which includes examples from each of the case studies. If you would like to explore any of the cases in further depth, links embedded within Summary + Findings, or the general navigation panel, will lead you to the full case study text.
