Innovations for Poverty Action IPA Charity Profile
Innovations for Poverty Action (IPA) aims to fill two voids that currently exist in development work: insufficient evaluation of what works -- and why -- in poverty reduction, and insufficient use of research results to develop and scale effective interventions. To fill these gaps, we employ social science tools, mainly from economics, psychology, political science and public health, to design and test programs that adapt to the local context and to the real behaviors of people. Using research results to identify effective interventions, we disseminate the lessons to policymakers, practitioners, investors and donors around the world.
