Center for Effective Global Action

Nonprofit or community organization

Last modified: December 18, 2014, 12:38 AM


The Center for Effective Global Action (CEGA) is the University of California's premiere center for research on global development. CEGAs faculty affiliates use two powerful techniques—rigorous evaluation and economic analysis—to measure the impacts of large-scale social and economic development programs. The Center integrates business and economic approaches with expertise in agriculture, public health, education, and the environment. As a result, our initiatives have produced some of the most influential and policy relevant research projects in recent years, including cash incentives for women's empowerment, low-cost water technology for rural communities, and early childhood health interventions for improved adult economic outcomes. Like our sister centers, the Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab (J-PAL) at MIT and Innovations for Poverty Action (IPA), we work to identify and disseminate the most effective strategies for poverty alleviation.
