Developing evaluation capacity (English)

The shift in the World Bank's development focus towards comprehensive and sustainable development, country ownership, increased transparency, knowledge sharing and evidence of results has generated an increasing need for adequate evaluation of development policies, programs, and project implementation. This emphasis also brings forth a growing demand for training in evaluation concepts and methods. Specifically, World Bank client countries need to: 1) develop an increased capacity to assess the efficiency of its institutions, policies and reform processes, 2) achieve greater development effectiveness and results orientation, 3) take ownership of the reform process, and 4) draw lessons from experience to sustain the development process.
