Effective rural development: IFAD’s evidence-based approach to managing for results
July 2018

This report reflects IFAD’s ongoing efforts to generate evidence to inform decision-making at the corporate and project level.

The chapters in this volume include examples of:

  • corporate-level evidence analysis (Part I);
  • project-level impact assessment (Part II);
  • and evidence analysis for thematic activities (Part III).

They are based on detailed quantitative and qualitative technical papers that are being or will be published in appropriate technical products, including in IFAD’s Research Paper Series and in academic journals.

Overall, the report shows how creating a culture of results-based management operates in practice – namely, through a series of different types of analyses that can inform decisions.
