Assessing the Development Effectiveness of the African Development Fund
This paper has demonstrated that the ADF has been effective in its operations. Using results drawn from post evaluation, it was found that the development effectiveness index of ADF was within the satisfactory range of performance. The findings from a less aggregative approach, which groups projects together according to whether they were rated satisfactory or unsatisfactory at post evaluation, also confirmed this result. These findings were also validated by an econometric method which measures the impact of ADF as an instrument of resource transfer. The approach found that the performance of ADF in poverty reduction was well above the average for ODA. The Fund was also effective in promoting investment, growth and productivity and human capital development.Read more

Evaluation of Development Assistance : Survey of users of evaluation
The Bank does not have an evaluation culture (in order to draw conclusions of failures and successes for any development action, and share them on a large scale within and outside the institution). This is the cause of the negative perceptions of the role and value of the evaluation products, and goes beyond the framework of the knowledge and application of DAC evaluation principles.Read more

Review of 2006-2008 Evaluating Results
This Action Plan on improving OPEV evaluation feedback and dissemination in the short- to medium-run (2006-2008) is intended as a first step in the preparation of a more comprehensive OPEV Evaluation Feedback and Knowledge Management Strategy. Such a strategy should be closely informed by and aligned with the Bank’s overall planned new Knowledge Management and Communications Strategy, which is under development and expected to be completed by mid-2007. OPEV’s new Evaluation Feedback and Knowledge Management Strategy would be developed concurrently as the Department is re-defining its role in the Bank’s new vision, organizational structure, and revised processes. This Action Plan therefore focuses on improving the feedback of evaluations into the Bank’s operations, and other immediate actions to expand OPEV’s outreach over the next two and a half years. In addition, it provides a road map to potentially intensified and extended activities of general dissemination and knowledge management, as well as evaluation capacity building and partnerships in the longer-term future.Read more

Evaluation of the Joint Africa Institute

Resources must be deployed with minimum waste to achieve best results. The review and recommendations in this report are presented in this spirit. Recognizing that the JAI has achieved a great deal, the evaluation nevertheless concludes that the substantial resources committed to the JAI could in future years be devoted to capacity-building efforts that are more clearly in line with emerging best practice.Read more
