Serving the three objectives of evaluation

The Independent Evaluation Strategy is grounded in the new evaluation policy, which provides the guiding framework. It identifies three complementary objectives for independent evaluation; namely learning, accountability, and promoting an evaluation culture.They are intended to support one over overarching goal to improve development effectiveness. The products and services that IDEV provides must enable it to deliver on all three objectives.

Most products contribute to more than one evaluation objective. Rather than pigeonholing products as primarily for one purpose or another, IDEV will maximize the benefits and reach of each product and rebalance its overall product mix to deliver on the three main objectives.
