Knowing what works.
Evaluation creates a foundation of information needed formaking policy decisions. By assessing interventions objectively
we strengthen the accountability of development partners.
The lessons learnt from our evaluations are a public good.
We make the findings of our work and the methods used transparent and freely accessible.
Our work is geared to international evaluation standards.
And through our own innovation in methodology and evaluation
designs we're helping to advance evaluation practices.
Evaluation fosters institutional learning. Through our
recommendations we're helping to improve the strategies
adopted by German development cooperation players.
We're committed to the working in partnership. We
involve development partners in our evaluation processes to ensure
that cooperation takes place between equals.
