Introducing the Dioptra Costing Tool

Online   |  past event  |  Dec 05 2023

The Costing Community of Practice (CCoP) Brown Bag Series invites stakeholders and a limited audience of between 20-50 individuals engaged in research and global development policy to hear presentations and discuss the latest research and innovations in the production and use of cost evidence.

In this Brown Bag Lunch, Justin Labeille and Mikaela Cochran from the International Rescue Committee (IRC) will introduce Dioptra – a new tool that gives organizations the ability to make rapid cost efficiency estimates using existing accounting data. Dioptra is a Django/Python web application that is maintained by a consortium of development organizations, including IRC, CARE, and Mercy Corps, among others. During their presentation, Justin and Mikaela will explain how Dioptra works, discuss how it can help introduce organizations to cost analysis, and walk us through a recent case study of a cost effectiveness analysis of a cash transfer program in Nigeria.

The format of the Brown Bag Series aims 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.
