IEA has recently completed independent evaluations of four additional CGIAR Research Programs: Global Rice Science Partnerships (GRiSP); Roots, Tubers, and Bananas (RTB); Livestock and Fish (L&F) and Water, Land and Ecosystems (WLE).
IEA has initiated the evaluations of three cross-cutting themes, to be completed by the end of 2016. The evaluations will draw on the findings of the completed CRP evaluations, and review strategies and progress on these critical areas of work across CGIAR.
A summary of the IEA workshop on approaches and experiences for assessing science quality (QoS) in CGIAR is now available. The report summarizes the rich discussions on defining quality of science as it relates to monitoring, appraising and evaluating research programs in CGIAR.
