From May 16-20, 2016 the Development Impact Evaluation (DIME) delivered an impact evaluation workshop in Mexico City, Mexico, aligning researchers, practitioners and producers from entertainment hubs including Hollywood, Nollywood and Bollywood to design and evaluate behavior change campaigns under a new DIME program: Entertainment Education.

Systematic reviews of these campaigns from risky sexual behavior to handwashing persistently show little or no effect on behavior.
Storytellers, behavioral scientists can make behavior change campaigns more effective.
The objective of this workshop is to provide participants with tools that would help them design effective mass media behavior change campaigns and impact evaluations for their own projects.
The workshop will introduce cutting-edge techniques of impact evaluation and new measurement instruments, will build an understanding of their importance for policymaking and program design, and, using a hands-on approach, will equip participants with skills like constructing a results chain and applying impact evaluation and measurement techniques to their own projects.
