Impact Evaluation and Public Sector Programs in India: What Can We do Right Now?

Elizabeth Mathew, Jonathan Sprague


This paper explores the existing gaps in the way CSS’ are evaluated for their impact in the Indian public sector. The authors identify an ‘ideal type’ model for a public sector impact evaluation mechanism that would be both effective and feasible to implement. The authors conclude with a brief forecast of why such steps might be resisted, and provide recommendations of how to overcome resistance to enable near-term improvements to the current evaluation culture.
