Innovative Methods for Useful Results

Who we are

The Centre of Excellence for Development Impact and Learning (CEDIL) develops and tests innovative methods for evaluation and evidence synthesis.  Established in January 2017 under a 5-year grant from the UK government’s Department for International Development (DFID), CEDIL is administered through the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and hosted at the London International Development Centre (LIDC). CEDIL has three key principles:

  1. Establish a high quality, inter-disciplinary academic centre to innovate in the field of impact evaluation
  2. Design, commission and implement impact evaluations
  3. Promote the uptake and use of evidence from impact evaluations
