Transcript

  • 1. Evidence-Based Policymaking: Challenges, Methods, and Innovations in Assessing Policy Influence<br />John Hoddinott<br />
  • 2. Insights from Development:The creation of sustainable agency<br />Agency: The capability of an individual or organization or government to take action<br />Capability is expanded through: resources; the provision of knowledge and the relaxation of constraints and/or the creation of opportunities<br />Policy Influence<br />Sustainability: The capacity to endure<br />Page 2<br />
  • 3. A tale of two policy process influences<br />IFPRI and export quotas in Vietnam<br />IFPRI and ‘graduation’ from the Productive Safety Nets Programme, Ethiopia<br />Page 3<br />
  • 4. Policy Processes and New Technology Adoption: Parallels <br />The provision of resources, knowledge, and the relaxation of constraints are core characteristics of technology adoption<br />Page 4<br />
  • 5. Assessing Policy Influence: Implications (1)<br />Assessing policy influence should be done across all stages of the policy process, not just policy implementation .<br />Arguably, policy implementation is the least important stage over which influence should be assessed<br />Seeing the analogy between policy processes and technology adoption opens up the set of actions over which policy engagement occurs and thus be assessed:<br />What outcomes do relevant actors seek to achieve<br />How are the inputs into these outcomes, and the outcomes themselves, measured<br />Understanding information flows; roles of networks and biases<br />Page 5<br />
  • 6. Assessing Policy Influence: Implications (2)<br />Different stages of the policy process are amenable to a variety of qual-quant assessment/evaluation techniques.<br />For example:<br />In decentralized settings (think federal political structures such as those found in Ethiopia and India) policy influence in agenda setting and formulation can be assessed through quantitative randomized encouragement designs<br />Influence on implementation can be assessed through focus groups, key informant interviews etc<br />Page 6<br />
