"Toward a new field of Development Engineering: Linking technology design to the demands of the poor"
CEGA's Executive Director Temina Madon and co-authors recently published in Procedia Engineering, making the case for the new field of Development Engineering. Launched this Fall at UC Berkeley, doctorate students can now obtain a "designated emphasis" in Development Engineering.
On August 19th, 2014, over 70 engineers, social scientists, donors, and practitioners gathered in Berkeley to discuss how to best leverage innovative monitoring and sensing tools in development research, and to mainstream them in interventions designed to address climate change. The event was co-sponsored by the Development Impact Evaluation (DIME) group at the World Bank and CEGA. Video and slides from the day's presentations and panels, in addition to a full agenda and list of participants, can be found on the event page.
