The faculty researchers who lead EPoD at Harvard Kennedy School believe that evidence-based smart policy design can help governments make the most of limited resources and improve the lives of the poor.

EPoD comprises a network of scholars, practitioners, staff, and students at Harvard as well as across the developing world. We work closely with public and private in-country partners to identify problems and generate rigorous evidence that enables the design and implementation of effective policy solutions, and we teach our methods both in the classroom and the field. 

Under the direction of Harvard professors Asim Ijaz Khwaja, Rohini Pande, and Rema Hanna, EPoD leverages its unique position at HKS to forge partnerships with senior policymakers from all parts of the world and implement evidence-based reform.
