CEGA Research Retreat (R^2) 2011

Conference   |  past event  |  Oct 28 2011

The CEGA Research Retreat (R^2) is an annual gathering of invited faculty, staff and students from multiple CEGA campuses with a shared interest in impact evaluation. The purpose of R^2, which features presentations by CEGA-affiliated researchers and their collaborators, is to generate feedback for new and ongoing research, and to stimulate productive discussions among participants.

Held in October 2011, the third annual R^2 featured presentations by five CEGA faculty and four graduate student fellowship recipients. Presentation topics included air pollution and labor supply in Mexico, minding spare change at small businesses in Kenya, alternative secondary schools in Honduras, cash transfers and child development in Ecuador, and targeting economic assistance in India.

The agenda for the event can be found below, along with PDFs and links for available presentations and papers.
