J-PAL Policy Insights summarize research findings from rigorous impact evaluations that shed light on the most effective approaches, and remaining knowledge gaps, to solve these pressing challenges. J-PAL is a global research centre based at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology working to reduce poverty by ensuring that policy is informed by scientific evidence. Anchored by a network of 171 affiliated professors at universities around the world, J-PAL conducts randomized impact evaluations to answer critical questions in the fight against poverty. Through their research and policy engagement J-PAL builds partnerships with governments, NGOs, private sector firms, and others to share knowledge, scale up effective programs, and advance evidence-informed decision-making.
