DIL Launch Workshop


The Development Impact Lab (DIL) fosters sustainable, equitable growth by linking technological innovation -- like the design of solar microgrids or mobile phone apps -- with rigorous social and economic analysis. This inaugural workshop highlighted several new techniques for measuring the impact of "development innovations," including randomized trials, wireless sensors, and mobile devices for data collection.
