About Us

The Campbell Collaboration promotes positive social and economic change through the production and use of systematic reviews and other evidence synthesis for evidence-based policy and practice. Their mission is to enhance the evidence basis so that policymakers, practitioners and service recipients are better equipped to make informed decisions. This can improve people’s lives by enhancing the quality of public and private services.

Howard White

CEO, Campbell Collaboration

Howard White is Chief Executive Officer of the Campbell Collaboration. Previously, he was the founding Executive Director of the International Initiative for Impact Evaluation (3ie) and before that led the impact evaluation programme of the World Bank’s Independent Evaluation Group. He started his career as an academic researcher at the Institute of Social Studies in the Hague, and the Institute of Development Studies, University of Sussex.

As an academic he leans toward work with policy relevance. At the same time, working in the policy field, he leans toward academic rigour as a basis for policy and practice. His other interests are running and walking, preferably long distances in remote places, and reading English history.

The National Council for the Evaluation of Social Development Policy (CONEVAL) is an autonomous institution whose objectives are to evaluate social policy and measure poverty in Mexico, in order to generate impartial and truthful information for contributing and promoting evidence-based decision making to improve social development policy. For CONEVAL, it is a priority to encourage a process in which, based on identifying what works and what does not work in public policy, it is possible to generate specific recommendations that can be used by the people in charge of the design and operation of government interventions.
