International Synthesis Workshop

co-hosted by the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA), Philippines and Independent Evaluation Department, AsDB

The workshop aims to draw lessons from the country studies in an inclusive manner, to convert the identified opportunities into a multi-annual programme, and to pave the way for a lasting and open partner-donor collaboration. More specifically, the objectives are to: (i) discuss the findings of the country studies among partners and donors; (ii) formulate a first multi-annual pilot program; and (iii) propose the working arrangements for a genuine partner-donor collaboration. 

Outputs would include a series of synthesis papers drawing on the country studies and the workshop discussions, a first multi-annual CPDE pilot programme with a common mutual learning framework and working arrangements.

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.
