The ISPC’s Standing Panel on Impact Assessment (SPIA) and the CGIAR Research Program on Policies, Institutions, and Markets (PIM) jointly organized a conference on assessing the impacts of agricultural research in July 2017. For SPIA, the conference was an opportunity to present results from its five-year research and capacity development program – ‘Strengthening Impact Assessment in CGIAR (SIAC).’ For PIM, it was the first annual CGIAR social science meeting it has planned for in its second phase.
This brief summarizes the key messages and outcomes of the event. It is does not summarize specific results since those will be presented in upcoming briefs.
