New book release!

Evaluating Environment in International Development 

Edited by Juha Uitto

The book provides novel and in-depth perspectives on the increasingly strategic area of climate change and development evaluation. Moving beyond projects and programs, it considers aspects such as evaluating normative work on the environment and evaluating environmental consequences of economic and social development efforts. It not only aims to stimulate the dialogue and learning process between practitioners and research, but also to provide an encouragement for social change, especially for the most affected people of climate and environmental change in the global South. As Nidhi Khattri (World Bank, Independent Evaluation Group) stated: “The book is a must read for anyone concerned about development and its effects on environment.”

The Paris Declaration Evaluation Phase 2 Team named Recipient of the American Evaluation Association 2012 Outstanding Evaluation Award

This evaluation focused on implementation of Paris Declaration Principles rather than a specific project or program. The evaluation of The Paris Declaration 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.
