Randomised Evaluation - Household Water Connections in Tangier, Morocco

Randomised Evaluation - Household Water Connections in Tangier, Morocco | Evaluation of Social Entrepreneurship | Scoop.it

Key Findings:

Researchers conducted a randomized evaluation to look at the effect of private connections in a setting where most households already had access to high quality water through public taps. They found that households in Tangiers, Morocco had a high willingness to pay for piped water, and while home water connection had no impact on waterborne illness, households' self-reported happiness improved substantially.

 

Approach:

The program provided an interest-free loan to be applied to installing a water connection. The loan was to be repaid in regular installments with the water bill over three to seven years. At the start of the program, a door-to-door awareness campaign was conducted in early 2008 among 434 households, randomly chosen from the 845 that were eligible for a connection. Those households received information about the credit offer as well as help with the administrative procedures needed to apply for the credit. The remaining households (the comparison group) were eligible to apply for a connection on credit if they wanted to, but they received neither individualized information nor procedural assistance.

Museum evaluation workshop challenges assumptions

Museum evaluation workshop challenges assumptions | Evaluation of Social Entrepreneurship | Scoop.it

"Steve Yalowitz, principal of Audience Viewpoints, led a workshop on Visitor Studies for USF students on November 2, 2013.

 

Steve led the class through several exercises and discussions that aimed to clarify why it is so important to understand and evaluate how visitors are experiencing our exhibitions and programs.  After unobtrusively observing visitor behaviors in the galleries, students concluded the day by discussing how the wide range of behaviors they saw challenged our assumptions about how visitors experience museums."
