Using our experience to improve the quality of our development engagement

Europaid - Tue, 07/15/2014 - 13:05

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:

  • Learning – to improve the effectiveness of EuropeAid interventions: By learning from successes and failures, evaluation generates knowledge about what has worked under which conditions, enabling those who develop strategies, design projects and implement aid to improve its effectiveness.
  • Accountability – to programme stakeholders and taxpayers: Evaluation contributes to providing accountability for the use of resources and the results delivered by comparing the performance of aid to its original objectives.
Types of evaluation and responsibilities

EuropeAid conducts evaluations at different levels:

  • Project and programme evaluations:  These evaluations are conducted at the intervention level. They provide an in-depth understanding of project/programme performance and lessons learned for the future. They are the responsibility of Delegations or the operational unit in charge of the project/programme.
  • Strategic evaluations:  Strategic evaluations assess the results of geographic, sector / thematic policies, and instruments over a significant period of time. They contribute to accountability by assessing the quality of EU development aid as a whole and provide recommendations and lessons for policy formulation and programming. They are managed by the central Evaluation Unit, which maintains a published work programme.

Evaluation policy

Europaid - Tue, 07/15/2014 - 10:19

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.
