Department background


The Evaluation Department (EvD) of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, is responsible for reviewing bank operations.  EvD evaluates bank projects and policies, establishing how well they meet their objectives and the extent to which they comply with the bank's mandate.  EvD also draws lessons from past experience which helps the bank to improve the design of new operations.  The department evaluates bank investments as well as donor funded agencies.  Special studies related to particular sectors and countries are also prepared by EvD.  In addition, EvD looks at the practices of other international financial institutions and utilises the lessons they have learned from their operations to improve the potential of EBRD projects.


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.
