This study was commissioned to map and compare evaluation practices across development agencies, primarily with a view to stimulate an internal debate within AFD on its evaluation systems during a time of reform. However, the report can stimulate a wider debate within the development evaluation community as it complements the existing literature on donor policies and the individual case studies of good practice. Nine agencies were reviewed as part of this study. The results show that there is indeed variation among the strategies and practices adopted by different evaluation units, in terms of both internal arrangements and different roles and responsibilities fulfilled.
