The Quality of Reviews and Decentralised Evaluations in Norwegian Development Cooperation

With growing demand for evidence on the effectiveness of Norwegian aid, reviews and decentralised evaluations play an important role in telling the story of what Norwegian development aid is achieving.

Building on work undertaken for Global Affairs Canada and Australia’s Department for Foreign Affairs and Trade, Itad, in association with CMI, was contracted by Norad to investigate the current quality of decentralised reviews, the extent to which they provide credible evidence of results and to understand how and in what ways the reviews are used and what factors influence quality and use.

This report details findings and conclusions from the evaluation.

More information on this report is available from Norad.
