IEA conducted a System-wide Evaluation of Results Based Management to learn lessons from the experience of introducing and implementing different aspects of RBM in CGIAR. On the basis of international experiences, the evaluation team formulated ten good practice principles for RBM applicable to CGIAR’s context and proposed a Theory of Change for RBM in CGIAR.
The Evaluation of Gender in CGIAR was completed in 2017, and is the first independent, System-wide evaluation on this topic. The Evaluation was conceived to cover two dimensions; Gender in CGIAR Research, and Gender at the workplace; since both contribute to the common objective of gender equity.
Both Evaluation reports have been finalized with receipt of the Management Response from the CGIAR System Organization.
IEA has completed the evaluations of 10 CGIAR Research Programs, which serve as the first set of evaluative information on the research and organizational performance of CRPs since their formation as a new modality of conducting research for development and collaboration in CGIAR.
IEA organized a 1.5 day (10-11 December) internal workshop to discuss approaches and experiences for assessing science quality, primarily through evaluations in the CGIAR. The overall purpose of the workshop was to consolidate and strengthen IEA’s approach to evaluating quality of science in the CGIAR considering the evaluation framework, evidence used, interpretation of findings and lessons for users of evaluation.
