The first workshop on Advanced Methods in Impact Assessment, a multi-center CGIAR short course sponsored by the Standing Panel on Impact Assessment (SPIA). The goal was to raise the standards of impact assessment approaches and promote their application by social and bio-physical scientists at the CGIAR Centers. The workshop was team taught by Kathy Baylis, Mary Arends-Keunning, and myself.
