From 2011-2013, while I was heading CERP, we developed and conducted intensive training workshops on evidence-based decision-making, designed in collaboration with J-PAL (MIT), EPoD (Kennedy School), and J-PAL South Asia( IFMR, India). My main task was to also make the teaching material more localized and context specific.

I also conducted various one or two day workshops in Sri Lanka and Nepal as part the CLEAR Initiative together with team from J-PAL South Asia (IFMR, India).
