Lesson Learning at the UK Department for International Development (DFID)
This project aims to develop actionable insights on learning lessons in DFID, particularly from evaluation studies and research findings
A report synthesising these insights will inform the creation of an action plan for DFID, to be finalised at the June 2010 meeting of the Independent Advisory Committee on Development Impact (IACDI).
ODI will undertake a series of structured interview with DFID staff in the UK (and overseas, by video conference) to gather their views on obstacles to lesson learning, particularly from evaluation studies and research.
The consultant will review existing relevant literature on lesson-learning and research and interview a range of DFID policy and programme staff in order to synthesis answers to a range of questions aimed at discovering staff attitudes and practices to lesson-learning and evidence.
