About Us

The Global Impact Collaboratory is about transforming how we plan for and demonstrate the impacts of development programs on people and their communities. Our goal is to answer two questions:  How can we ensure our international development projects are really working? How can we make sure what we learn on projects, about what really works, is widely shared?
