The DIME Wiki is a public good developed and maintained by DIME Analytics, a team which creates tools that improve the quality of impact evaluation research at DIME. The DIME Wiki is targeted to all researchers and M&E specialists at the World Bank, clients who are managing data collection efforts in the field, donor institutions, universities, NGOs, and governments. While there are many existing impact evaluation resources, none meet the specific gap the DIME Wiki aims to fulfill: a resource focused on practical implementation guidelines rather than theory, open to the public, easily searchable, suitable for users of varying levels of expertise, up-to-date with the latest technological advances in electronic data collection, with a vibrant network of editors who are experts in this field.
DIME is the impact evaluation unit of the World Bank's Development Research Group. Part of DIME’s mission is to intensify the production of, and access to, public goods that improve the quantity and quality of global development research, while lowering the costs of performing impact evaluations for the entire research community. The DIME Wiki aims to further this initiative, and is funded by the United Kingdom’s Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office through the i2i Trust Fund.
