She built New Incentives to introduce the nonprofit sector to CCTs because they are among the most well-studied evidence-based development tools in the world. Having a background in impact evaluation and field research, Svetha understands how to bring policymakers, development researchers, and NGO partners together to create what New Incentives calls next-generation CCT programming.
