Impact evaluation of rural road projects

Author

Abstract

Very few of the (many) aid-financed rural road projects in developing countries have been the subject of rigorous impact evaluations. Assessing the welfare impacts of rural roads poses a number of problems, with implications for data collection and evaluation methods. This paper surveys the problems and discusses some practical implementation issues related specifically to conducting an impact evaluation of a rural roads project that is assigned to some geographic areas but not to others.
