Using Multipliers to Estimate Impact

Feb 1, 2018 | by Alexandra Miehlbradt and Hans Posthumus

Multipliers can be a cost-effective tool to estimate broader impacts such as employment creation. Programs need to validate existing multipliers or need to develop their own sector and context specific multipliers.

This Practitioners’ Note focuses on the decision-making process; for the more technical aspects, reference is made to other publications and case studies.
