Tuesday, March 21, 2017 from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm

MCC Smart Aid logo

The Smart Aid Series brings together practitioners and MCC experts to share best practices and lessons learned to more effectively drive development forward.

As an evidence-based institution, MCC relies on rigorous economic analysis to successfully design and implement our projects. Yet implementers and academics alike recognize the gap between research and results. As a data-driven agency, how can data gaps be bridged to incorporate lessons learned from the research community? 

In commemoration of World Water Day, MCC's WASH experts, together with research partners, discussed bridging data gaps in the Water & Sanitation sector.

Panelists include

  • Marc Tkach, Department of Compact Operations, Water Sanitation & Irrigation, MCC
  • Stefan Osbourne, Department of Policy and Evaluation, Economic Analysis, MCC
  • Eddy Perez, Chief of Party, Sustainable WASH Systems, University of Colorado
  • Jeff Albert, Deputy Director, WASHPals Program, Aquaya Institute

Moderated by Christina Barstow, AAAS Fellow, Department of Compact Operations, MCC

The Smart Aid Series brings together development practitioners and MCC experts to share best practices and lessons learned to more effectively move aid forward.
