The World Bank’s Narrating Behavior Change program of the Development Impact Evaluation department (DIME-NBC) conducts experimental evaluations of entertainment media to improve the effectiveness of development investments. Next Tuesday October 29th (12:30-2:00pm EST) we will present some of the work we are doing with our edutainment partners MTV, Discovery and ITVS. These edutainment partners will debate with the World Bank’s heads of Health, Gender and Communications how best to scale up this communication approach in developing countries.
