EuropeAid has a long and rich experience in evaluation. EuropeAid recognises that the evaluation of its interventions is crucial if it is to learn from experience in order to enhance its effectiveness in development cooperation.
Today, development aid stakeholders and the general public are demanding greater transparency in the European Union's cooperation with developing countries. This places EuropeAid under increasing scrutiny regarding the results of its interventions.
So, it is important that EuropeAid has a clear and transparent framework for undertaking independent evaluation.. (EuropeAid has committed itself to develop an effective evaluation system to produce independent and high quality evaluations.)Purpose of evaluation in EuropeAid
Evaluation consists in judging the results of public actions in order to check their conformity with set objectives. It has two core purposes:
EuropeAid conducts evaluations at different levels:
DG DEVCO EuropeAid is taking steps to upgrade the role and practice of evaluation in its activities with a view to improving the evidence base of its actions and encouraging a learning culture. We have therefore adopted an Evaluation Policy.
The Evaluation Policy is the result of an extensive consultation process involving not only our Delegations and HQ staff but also the EU Member States evaluation services.
The Evaluation Policy represents a commitment to evaluation as a core part of EU development practice. It demonstrates the important role evaluation plays in building and maintaining a culture of accountability and learning. It seeks to inform the different stakeholders involved in evaluation by setting out the common principles and standards which guide evaluation. By establishing a clear institutional framework, the Policy contributes to improving both quality and consistency of evaluation practice. It responds in the context of development co-operation to the Commission’s call in 2013 to put “evaluation first”, and see the learning of lessons as the starting point for any new initiative or proposal.
