Center for Effective Global Action
CEGA is a multidisciplinary research center at UC Berkeley addressing international development challenges through impact evaluation and economic analysis. The Center's mission is to improve development outcomes by designing and rigorously testing strategies for poverty alleviation in low- and middle-income countries. CEGA also seeks to bridge the gap between scientific research and social action, by equipping policy-makers and donors with the knowledge needed to improve development practice. In addition, the Center trains developing country researchers in the latest evaluation methods, to promote sustainable advances in social science and policy-making.
