The Center for Evaluation and Development
C4ED is a non-profit organization and registered charity that provides evidence on what works, for whom, when, why and under which circumstances in the development sector. It conducts excellent, rigorous and independent research that meets the highest standards of quantitative and qualitative analysis, and collaborates with renowned partners like UNICEF, ILO, the World Bank, 3ie, KfW and GIZ.
Based in Germany, the Center runs numerous large-scale, randomized control trials as well as quasi-experimental policy evaluation studies in more than 30 countries across Africa, Asia, Latin America and Europe. Headed by Prof. Dr. Markus Frölich, the Center is supported by a team and network of experienced researchers who bring a broad range of expertise from education, health, and labor markets, to microfinance, insurance and rural development, to name a few.
News: From August 29 till September 2, 2016, the Center was hosting the 2016 J-PAL Europe Training in Impact Evaluations in Mannheim. The training brought together over 40 evaluation practitioners and researchers from all over the world. Pictures will be published soon!
