Joint evaluation of citizens' voice and accountability

Research reports

Written by Alina Rocha Menocal

This joint donor evaluation deepens understanding of what works and what doesn't work in donor support to citizens' voice and accountability (CV&A) interventions. In the first phase of the evaluation the Overseas Development Institute (ODI) prepared a literature review, conducted an analysis of 90 CV&A donor interventions, developed an evaluation framework to assess CV&A interventions and piloted the framework and its accompanying methodology in two countries - Benin and Nicaragua.

In the second phase of the evaluation, ECG donors commissioned five country case studies in Bangladesh, the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Indonesia, Mozambique and Nepal from other independent organisations. This synthesis report pulls together the findings of all the outputs from this evaluation and seeks to identify common themes and lessons and key recommendations for improved donor practice.
