Course Introduction
Course Name: Impact Evaluation and Rural Development
Course Credit: Two credit
Course Introduction: Measuring the impact of interventions is an indispensable tool to establish accurate policy assessments and evaluations. In the autumn 2023 lectures we will first explain different methods of impact evaluation before we focus on policy issues and interventions related to rural development and finance. Such methods are vastly applied in market economies, but in the present lectures ample attention will also be paid to socio-economic environments where markets are imperfect or fail. It consists of eight lectures:
1. Impact evaluation of program, project and policy interventions 
2. Causality, counterfactuals and randomized methods
3. Techniques of impact evaluation
4. Market failure and poverty traps in rural development
5. Social experiments using randomized control methods
6. Risk and insurance
7. Credit and micro-finance
8. Rural saving
