Impact Evaluation Methodology Design for Advance Rulings Project in Madagascar

The Project at A Glance

The Global Alliance for Trade Facilitation (the Alliance) carried out a project implement advance rulings in Madagascar.

International Economics (IEC) provided support to the Global Alliance for Trade Facilitation in preparations for the rigorous and independent impact evaluation of the project with the dual aims of accountability and learning under implementation in Madagascar.

What We Found

To undertake the evaluation, the team explored different methodologies including the difference-in-difference approach, propensity score matching, and regression distribution design. Our Team carried out an evaluability assessment and evaluation questions before drafting the final impact assessment.

Our Strategy and Impact

The aim of this project was to conduct an evaluability assessment, with the goal of identifying the counterfactuals as well as the most suitable impact evaluation methodology, considering the context and nature of the intervention. International Economics was involved in the design phase of the methodology.

The evaluation provided Alliance decision-makers and stakeholders with robust information on the impacts of the Madagascar project. The results and lessons learned contributed to organisational learning, fed into the design and implementation of the future Alliance projects and helped build the evidence base om trade facilitation interventions.
