Our 2018 plans for research

Added: 19.04.2018 14:58 | 87 views | 0 comments

This is the second of three posts that form our annual review and plan for the following year. The reviewed our progress in 2017. The following post will cover GiveWell's progress and plans as an organization. We aim to release our metrics on our influence on donations in 2017 by the end of June 2018. Summary
Our primary research goals for 2018 are to:
  1. Explore areas that may be more cost-effective than our current recommendations but don’t fit neatly into our current criteria by investigating (i) interventions aimed at influencing policy in low- and middle-income countries and (ii) opportunities to influence major aid agencies.
  2. Find new top charities that meet our current criteria by (i) completing intervention reports for at least two interventions we think are likely to result in GiveWell top charities by the end of 2019, (ii) considering renewal of GiveWell Incubation Grants to current grantee organizations that may become top charities in the future and making new Incubation Grants, and (iii) developing and maintaining high-quality relationships with charities, funders, and influencers in the global health and development community.
  3. Improve our internal processes to support the above goals. We plan to continue to delegate significant parts of our top charity update process to non-management staff and to improve our year-end process for making recommendations.
  4. Continue following our top charities and address priority questions. We are devoting fewer resources than we have in the past to top charity updates. We plan to continue gathering up-to-date information to allow us to make high-quality allocation decisions for giving season, and to answer a small number of high-priority questions.

  5. Our secondary goals (which we hope to achieve, but are lower priority than the goals above) are to:
    1. Improve the quality of our decisions and transparency about our decision-making process.
    2. Hire more flexible research capacity to increase our output.
    3. Complete reviews of two new potential top charities.

    4. We discuss each of these goals in greater depth below.
