This chapter examines the diffusion and transfer of impact assessment (IA) in developing countries. ‘Diffusion’ is used to refer to the spread of IA from Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) countries to developing countries. This spread of IA to developing and transition countries is first described. This is followed by a discussion of the ‘transfer’ of IA to lower- and middle-income economies. Here, transfer is used to refer to the successful adoption and implementation of IA. This allows for a discussion the problems of inappropriate policy transfer in the context of diffusion of the ‘best practice’ OECD IA model. The key factors that will affect the successful transfer and sustainability of the IA approach to developing countries is then discussed. The chapter ends with a brief summary and conclusion.

Impact Assessment and Sustainable Development

European Practice and Experience

Edited by Clive George and Colin Kirkpatrick

Translation of the principle of sustainable development into policy and practice, and the evaluation of the outcomes of these strategic interventions, are some of the most pressing challenges facing policymakers in Europe and beyond. The chapters in this book contribute to the debate surrounding these challenges. By exploring the conceptual and methodological issues relating to the evaluation of sustainable development and analysing European practice and experience, this work provides a coherent and integrated contribution to our understanding of these issues.
