To transform the demand for, use and practice of impact evaluation amongst the development community, particularly in areas that are currently under-evaluated. The programme will work simultaneously across multiple sectors and multiple geographies on 125 impact evaluations. This coordinated, large scale approach will provide evaluation evidence, training and technical support across government and donor portfolios (up to 16 technical workshops with 36 teams participating in each workshop; 1080 people trained and at least 75 dissemination events held) and will drive forward the use of evaluation evidence in policy making as a whole.
The project will establish a Centre of Excellence for Impact Evaluation. The Centre will provide a range of services to strengthen the evidence base for what does or does not work in international development. It will address gaps in existing evaluation practice areas, and maximise the effectiveness of UK funded international development by delivering high quality policy relevant studies of specific programmes and themes and by providing technical and policy advice to DFID and developments partners on better use of impact evaluation as well as developing and testing new and innovative approaches to impact evaluation.
