This evaluation focused on implementation of Paris Declaration Principles rather than a specific project or program. The initially documented how its many principles were being implemented and operationalised; then later assessed results on the ground, in policy development and more broadly. A final report summarised, analysed, and synthesized more than 50 studies in 21 partner countries and across 18 donor agencies, as well as several studies on special themes. “The evaluation process was participatory and consultative among partner countries, donors, and international organization participants,” notes Michael Quinn Patton, a pioneer in the field of evaluation who nominated the work for the Outstanding Evaluation Award.
