Supporting USAID Impact Evaluation in Honduras
The University of Notre Dame Initiative for Global Development (NDIGD) has been awarded a $1.2 million contract out of an activity implemented by Dexis Consulting Group for the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) in Honduras.
Impact evaluations — the systematic collection and analysis of information regarding development projects — are one of our team's core functions and are critical for improving effectiveness and making informed decisions. A team of Notre Dame researchers, led by Juan Carlos Guzman, NDIGD director of monitoring and evaluation, and Tom Hare, program director, will partner with USAID/Honduras to determine research questions and strategies for USAID programs in Honduras. The focus of the research, under Dexis’ Monitoring and Evaluation Support for Collaborative Learning and Adapting program, will be to conduct rigorous impact evaluations of USAID/Honduras programs related to citizen security, workforce development and food security.
“One of the Keough School’s goals is to connect research to policy and practice in order to help answer critical questions for development practitioners in the field,” said Scott Appleby, dean of Notre Dame’s Keough School of Global Affairs. “This important engagement with USAID will lead to more informed strategy for development progress in Honduras and around the world.”
