ATAI webinar with DLEC: If It Worked Elsewhere, Will It Work Here?

Do decisions always need to be informed by evidence from your local context? How can results of impact evaluations conducted in different contexts apply where you work? Adopting a generalizability framework for integrating different types of evidence and data – including results from randomized evaluations, knowledge of the local context, and implementation considerations – can help policymakers and practitioners make evidence-informed decisions.

On July 17, ATAI staff presented a framework for bringing evidence from one context to another on a webinar hosted by the Developing Local Extension Capacity (DLEC) Community of Practice. In this webinar, ATAI staff introduced a framework for considering whether existing evidence on effective programs can be integrated into decision-making and practice. The framework was then applied through a case study of an innovative credit and storage program. The session also included discussion of how ATAI has helped policymakers use the framework in their context, and concluded with a discussion of when to leverage the framework and where to find evidence.
