Tools and Resources for Assessing Social Impact


Poverty and Social Impact Analysis (PSIA)

This method analyzes the distributional impact of policy reforms on the well-being or welfare of different stakeholder groups. PSIA starts with the ex-ante analysis of expected poverty and social impacts of policy reforms (predicting impacts before the policy actually takes effect). PSIA then advocates monitoring results during implementation. Finally, where possible, PSIA suggests evaluating ex-post the poverty and social impacts of reforms.
