IOE Reports Interactive Map 2014

January 2014

In the context of the 10th anniversary of IFAD's independent evaluation function, the Independent Office of Evaluation (IOE) developed this interactive map to provide an easy and quicker access to nearly 200 evaluation reports released from 2003.

The reports are grouped by region (as per IFAD regional divisions), country, year and type of evaluation. Over these ten years, IOE has accumulated a significant amount of evaluative data for larger-scale analysis of performance and impact of IFAD operations.

The reports are a product of staff of IFAD’s Independent Office of Evaluation and the findings and conclusions expressed therein do not necessarily reflect the views of IFAD Member States or the representatives to its Executive Board. The designations  employed and the presentation of material in these publications do not imply the expression of any opinion whatsoever on the part of IFAD concerning the legal status of any country, territory, city or area or of its authorities, or concerning the delimitation of its frontiers or boundaries. The designations “developed” and “developing” countries are intended for statistical convenience and do not necessarily express a judgement about the stage reached by a particular country or area in the development process.

The interactive map is going to be updated regularly. General information about IOE’s publications, including evaluation reports produced before 2003 and other types of reports not contained in this interactive map (thematic evaluations and project completion report validations) are also available on the Evaluation Gallery or upon request from the Independent Office of Evaluation, evaluation@ifad.org.

IFAD’s independent evaluation: Ten years of accountability, learning and transformation

April 2013
Since its establishment in 1977, IFAD’s evaluation function has evolved signifi cantly. The function was carried out initially by the Monitoring and Evaluation Unit, which focused mostly on mid-term evaluations during project implementation, and over time its name and reporting lines were changed. The major transformation was the establishment of the independent evaluation function in 2003, approved by the Executive Board as part of IFAD’s fi rst Evaluation Policy, which created the Offi ce of Evaluation. Under the revised Evaluation Policy of 2011, the offi ce was re-named as the Independent Offi ce of Evaluation of IFAD (IOE).
