The evolution of the independent evaluation function at IFAD

novembre 2015

Over the years, evaluation has become an increasingly critical function in multilateral and bilateral development agencies, including international financial institutions (IFIs) and United Nations organizations.

It is through evaluation that assessments and analyses of operations and strategies are conducted, with a view to better understanding what is working well, what is not working well and, most importantly, the factors that have an impact on performance.

Historically, the Member States, governing bodies and Management of the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) – a unique institution that is both a specialized agency of the United Nations and an IFI – have always taken evaluation very seriously.

IOE Reports Interactive Map 2014

janvier 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.
