Congratulations to the Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab (J-PAL) which, earlier this year, marked a significant milestone, achieving more than 1,000 completed and ongoing randomized evaluation conducted!

“This achievement reflects the tremendous commitment of our affiliated professors, implementing partners, and research staff, alongside the trust of study participants. And this body of research is more important now than ever, as policymaking based on data and evidence is critical for pandemic response and recovery”. – J-PAL

Founded in 2003,  supported and partnered with Community Jameel since 2005, J-PAL is a network of over 190 affiliated professors working to tackle the root causes of poverty through evidence-based assessment, including issues related to health, education, youth employment, and financial inclusion.

In 2019, the Lab’s co-founders, Esther Duflo and Abhijit Banerjee – along with longtime J-PAL affiliate Michael Kremer – won the 2019 Nobel Prize for Economics, in recognition of “their experimental approach to alleviating global poverty.”
