Policy Researcher Reproducibility and Transparency in Colombia Catalyst Training ProjectPublic Policy

Oscar Barriga-Cabanillas Aleksandr Michuda

Colombian law dictates that information or data gathered during public policy evaluations, after being anonymized, must be publicly available. However, this is usually not the case in practice. Methods exist to rectify this situation, but there is low adoption of these methods. This project involves two workshops in Bogotá and Cartagena targeted at policymakers, a consultancy firm that works with the government, and graduate students, focusing on methods and tools to make their work more transparent and easier to reproduce. The training will help them develop smoother workflows, as well as foster more transparency within their organizations and with their citizenry.
