Speakers can include:
The format of the Brown Bag Series is intended to facilitate an engaging and informal forum for the CCoP to engage with its community of partners and practitioners. Events will incorporate significant time for discussion to enable a smaller audience to provide feedback, ask questions, and discuss productive solutions and opportunities related to cost evidence.

Liz Brown (CEGA) presented a costing pre-analysis plan – a new tool for integrating cost research with randomized evaluations of development interventions. CEGA’s new costing pre-analysis planning module is useful for integrating cost analysis with randomized evaluations. The tool specifies the key information that costing pre-analysis plans should report for purposes of transparency and rigor. The costing module can be integrated with pre-analysis plans for the impact evaluation or published as a standalone document for pre-registration.

Marcus Manuel from the Overseas Development Institute will share research findings from a two year program that identified examples of low cost and scalable interventions in the justice sector that donors could support. Marcus’ global costing for the sector in 2019 found that overseas aid supporting cost-effectiveness analysis in the justice sector lags the health sector by decades. See this blog describing current research and links below for more.
The Costing Community of Practice (CCoP) is a CEGA coordinated effort to address barriers to generating more, and better cost evidence produced in conjunction with development impact evaluations. Its members include the International Initiative for Impact Evaluation (3ie), the International Rescue Committee (IRC), the Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab (J-PAL), Innovations for Poverty Action (IPA), Evidence Action, the Strategic Impact Evaluation Fund (SIEF) at the World Bank, the Economic and Social Research Foundation (ESRF) in Tanzania, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), and the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC).
