The Center for International Evaluation, created in 2015, leverages Abt’s research and evaluation capabilities and global presence to strengthen our capabilities in overseas evaluation.

Center Director Melissa Chiappetta leads the development of Abt’s work in program evaluations conducted within an international context in collaboration with all areas of Abt Associates. These include international health, international economic growth, social and economic policy, environment and natural resources, and U.S. health.

The Center ensures that clients benefit from Abt’s state-of-the-art research, monitoring, and evaluation capabilities across a range of technical sectors. This helps help policy leaders and decision makers better determine which policies and programs are having a real impact.
