Building a Case for Integrated Development: Identifying and Answering Key Research Questions
International development programs often tackle the world’s most complex problems by sector, but this fragmentation rarely considers the interconnectedness that determines success or the multifaceted people these programs target. Experience tells us that such a “siloed” approach has limitations and can yield unintended negative consequences.
Integrated programs hold promise for delivering better development programming, and as a result, nuanced, sustainable results for people in cycles of poverty. But how can we recognize their impact? How do we research and measure something broad, diverse, and heterogeneous?
Join us for a discussion led by a variety of international development stakeholders – donors, implementers, and academia – about specific needs, challenges, and opportunities for strengthening the evidence base for integrated development approaches.
This event is co-sponsored by Locus, a coalition of organizations dedicated to advancing evidence-based solutions to global development challenges that are integrated, driven by local communities, and based on shared measures.
