Every day, evidence generated by J-PAL researchers is influencing policy and improving lives, sometimes very directly for example through the scale-up of effective programs but also in less direct but equally important ways.To date, our evidence has helped improve the lives of at least 30 million people around the world through the scale-up of highly effective policies and programs.
