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.
On Tuesday, February 20th, we will be hosting Dr. Emily Gustafsson-Wright from the Brookings Institute to discuss a new costing tool: the Childhood Cost Calculator (C3).
High-quality cost data allow decision makers to make informed choices when implementing, modifying, or scaling up programs and interventions. Despite these benefits, cost data remain scarce due to the challenges in collecting and analyzing cost data. In June 2023, building off nearly a decade of work, the Center for Universal Education at the Brookings Institution launched the Childhood Cost Calculator (C3). C3 is an open-access tool for costing interventions across a wide range of sectors related to children and youth including education, health, nutrition, water and sanitation, social protection, and governance. This tool can be used by stakeholders to answer costing questions for planning, adaptation and changes, and to better understand cost drivers.
For more information about the work that the Brookings Institute is doing in this space, please see Brooking’s Childhood Cost Initiative website, as well as Emily’s recent article on data needs on the types of data needed for outcome based financing.
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.
Please email Kevin Conklin to be added to a brown bag lunch calendar invitation.
