NAME RESEARCH PARTNERS
University of Chicago, Economic Department; Universidad del Cema (Joint Initiative for Latin American Experimental Economic - https://economics.uchicago.edu/content/uchicago-and-ucema-create-joint-initiative-latin-american-experimental-economics)
DATE WHEN RESULTS AVAILABLE
Given that the project closes in February 2021, the impact evaluation data could be ready for the second semester of 2021. The data collection/impact evaluation is expected to be done throughout the project implementation and as the time each subproject comes to its end.
The preliminary idea of the Impact Evaluation is to design a field experiment with the project's participants, due to the heterogeneity of the subprojects, its target beneficiaries, the type of investment/subproject and geographic location.
