Evaluating Development Effectiveness

Half a century of experience with development aid has created crucial questions about what works and what does not in different contexts. Development evaluation is evolving rapidly, both to provide accountability for results and to supply lessons of experience that can improve current development practice. Much is yet to be learned about what methods work best for what evaluation tasks. And, even where methods can be agreed upon, their use is often impeded by institutional and capacity constraints. T his volume takes stock of recent progress toward defining and evaluating development effectiveness, with particular emphasis on assessing the potential of new evaluation methodologies. This work includes contributions from a wide range of distinguished academics and practitioners. The authors discuss the difficulty of defining development objectives to be evaluated; the relation between approaches to aid itself and approaches to aid evaluation; problems of evaluating the performance of development agencies; and the relative merits of quantitative, qualitative, and mixed evaluation techniques for judging performance.
