More about the Practitioner’s Guide for Technology Evaluation in Global Development
MIT’s Comprehensive Initiative on Technology Evaluation (CITE) and Technology Exchange Lab have teamed up to develop the Practitioner’s Guide for Technology Evaluations in Global Development. Building on CITE’s evaluation methodology and Technology Exchange Lab’s work in matching on-the-ground needs with innovative solutions, the Practitioner’s Guide offers user-friendly tools and an approachable framework to let any organization conduct its own comparative technology evaluation.
Whether you are a community-based organization working to tackle water access challenges, an iNGO looking to launch and scale a solar-lantern distribution program, or an innovator seeking insights on how to adapt products to new geographical and social contexts, the Practitioner’s Guide offers a step-by-step framework for conducting rigorous evaluations, no matter the size of your organization or resources available.
