Definition and Purpose of Evaluation

An evaluation is an assessment, as systematic and objective as possible, of an on-going or completed project, programme or policy, its design, implementation and results.
The main purposes of evaluations are i) to improve future policy, programmes and projects through feedback of lessons learned and ii) to provide a basis for accountability, including the provision of information to the public.

Evaluation Principles

Evaluation Principles
1. Impartiality Evaluations should avoid bias in findings, analyses and conclusions and should be carried out in consideration of the different perspectives of the various interested parties.
2. Independence The evaluation process should be independent from the process concerned with the policy making, the delivery and the management of development cooperation.
3. Credibility Evaluations should be conducted transparently by the independent expertise. Credibility also requires that evaluation should report success as well as failures.
4. Usefulness Evaluation findings must be presented timely in a clear and concise way to have an impact on decision making. They should fully reflect the different interests and needs of the many parties involved in development cooperation. Easy accessibility is also crucial for usefulness.
5. Partnership Both donors and recipients should be involved in the evaluation process, if possible. Involving all parties concerned gives an opportunity for learning by doing and will strengthen skills and capacities in the recipient countries. Also, collaboration between donors is essential in order to learn from each other and to avoid duplication of effect.
