Department background / Description de l'unité

The Development Activities Evaluation Unit in the Treasure Directorate General (DG Treasury) of the Ministry of Economy and Finances, is responsible for conducting and managing evaluations of development activities undertaken by the Ministry.  These include evaluations of France's contributions to multilateral banks and funds and bilateral development assistance initiatives, such as aid for trade programmes, global budget support, and initiatives financed by the Emerging Country Facility and FASEP-ETUDES projects (a private sector aid fund).



The publication "Better Aid: Evaluation in Development Agencies" provides individual evaluation profiles for each member of the DAC Network on Development Evaluation.

Each profile provides information on the core elements of the evaluation function set-up and management, including the mandate of the unit, mechanisms to protect independence and ensure quality, reporting lines and distribution of evaluation reports.
