Evaluation and assessment


Our work on programme and policy evaluations and assessments supports partner countries and donors in improving the quality of policy-making in international development. We design tailored analytical frameworks and methodologies to address research questions specific to each study. The team has strong expertise in the evaluation of public finance management systems, in particular conducting analysis based on the Public Expenditure and Financial Accountability (PEFA) evaluation framework.

Our work also includes analysis on the design and implementation of monitoring and evaluation (M&E) systems at country and donor levels. Our aim is to contribute to the improvement of M&E systems as tools for development policy and strategy planning.

Our work on evaluation and assessment adds to our applied knowledge of aid and strengthens our services in other areas through the mutually reinforcing mechanisms of evidence-based policy development.
