3ie funds impact evaluations and systematic reviews that generate evidence on what works in development programmes and why.
3ie is an international grant-making NGO promoting evidence-informed development policies and programmes. We are the global leader in funding and producing high-quality evidence of what works, how, why and at what cost in international development. We believe that better and policy-relevant evidence will make development more effective and improve peopleas lives.
Since its founding in 2008, 3ie has awarded over 200 grants (146 impact evaluations, 33 systematic reviews and 38 other studies) in over 50 countries, with a total value of US$ 84,225,205.

3ie manages two sanitation-related thematic windows; one funded by the Water Supply and Sanitation Collaborative Council, and another funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The former aims to generate evidence on the psychosocial effects of sanitation, and the latter, promoting latrine use in rural India.
