Evidence to Policy – New Video

The Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab’s (J-PAL) has showcased PxD as an organization that leveraged the value of randomized evaluations to launch more effective approaches to reducing poverty on a global scale.

The video was produced as part of J-PAL’s “Evidence to Policy” series which was envisaged as a vehicle to highlight the use of rigorous testing to inform policy and scale effective change.  

The producers interviewed Shawn Cole, PxD co-founder, Chair of our Board and a J-PAL affiliated professor, Tomoko Harigaya, Chief Economist, and Niriksha Shetty, India Country Director, discuss how evidence from rigorous evaluations catalyzed the scale-up of a low-cost, mobile phone-based agricultural information delivery system to support smallholder farmers. 

We thank J-PAL for this rather excellent production!
