World Bank - Strategic Impact Evaluation Fund (SIEF)

Ending extreme poverty and building shared prosperity requires evidence to identify those programs and policies that will have a real impact. The World Bank’s Strategic Impact Evaluation Fund (SIEF) makes this happen by investing in impact evaluations of innovative human development programs in low-and middle income countries, and by working directly with policymakers and other key stakeholders to use the results and build better policies and programs that successfully improve people’s lives. 

SIEF is a multi-donor trust fund created in 2012 with the support of the British government’s Department for International Development (DFID). The fund currently focuses on four human development areas that are crucial to improving the lives of the world’s poorest and most vulnerable: Early Childhood Development and Nutrition, Basic Education, Health Systems and Service Delivery, and Water Supply, Sanitation, and Hygiene. 

SIEF partners with leading impact evaluation researchers and those who develop and implement innovative programs — both within governments and within non-governmental and other organizations. In the process, we ensure active engagement with key stakeholders and we support teams to make evidence accessible and policy relevant.

The Strategic Impact Evaluation Fund (SIEF), a partnership program promoting evidence-based policy making in human development, is very pleased to announce two new calls for impact evaluation research proposals. SIEF is looking for proposals in (1) early childhood development, with a focus on promoting the cognitive and socio-emotional development of children ages 3-6, and (2) effectively engaging non-state actors in basic education. The application process is a two-step process. The first stage requires completing the online SIEF Application Form and submitting a completed Evaluation Budget Template by email. Detailed information on the calls is available below. Selected proposals will have the opportunity to receive seed funding up to US$25,000 to develop a full technical proposal for the impact evaluation. Selection in this round is not a guarantee of funding beyond the seed funding.  All technical proposals will also undergo a careful peer review.
