The effectiveness of development aid benefits from field experiments. Before a development programme is implemented on a large scale, whether or not it will work should be tested on a small scale using what is known as a randomized intervention. Such interventions, where there is often close collaboration between academics and NGOs (non-governmental organizations), provide a much clearer picture of what works and what does not, according to economist Prof. Robert Lensink of the University of Groningen.
