  • Two regional centers in Africa:
    • University of Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, South Africa
    • Centre Africain d’Etudes Supérieures en Gestion (CESAG), Dakar, Sénégal
  • Will help AfDB RMCs avoid dependence on western international institutions for M&E and PM services, which are sometimes expensive and not customized to their specific needs

CLEAR is a global initiative aimed at strengthening developing countries’ capacities in monitoring and evaluation (M&E) and performance management (PM) to support results and evidence-based decision-making (Centers for Learning on Evaluation and Results).  It aims to do so by (1) supporting regional centers to develop and provide high-quality applied in-region training, technical assistance, and evaluation and advisory services; and (2) providing global learning to produce innovative materials and enable practical knowledge-sharing on M&E and PM across regions.

The initiative is being supported by the African Development Bank, the Australian Agency for International Development, the Asian Development Bank, the Belgian Development Cooperation, the Inter-American Development Bank, the Rockefeller Foundation, the Swedish International Development Agency, the Swiss Agency for Development Cooperation, the UK Department for International Development, and the World Bank Group. The secretariat is housed in the Independent Evaluation Group (IEG) of the World Bank Group.

CLEAR supports competitively selected regional institutions to host the centers. At present, there are  five CLEAR centers and their partner organizations:
