Corporate-level evaluation on IFAD’s decentralization experience
The Independent Office of Evaluation (IOE) of IFAD is conducting a formative corporate-level evaluation of IFAD’s decentralization experience. The evaluation recommendations will be based on triangulation of evidence and are expected to cover different dimensions of IFAD’s decentralization, including in the areas of organizational architecture, delegation of authority, IFAD country office models, and related budget and human resource implications.

To further strengthen the evidence base of the evaluation, IOE has organized three regional consultation workshops and will organize the fourth one in Hanoi, Viet Nam on 6-7 July, 2016  to cover all five geographic regions where IFAD operates.

IOE has reviewed the Fund’s support of Environment and Natural Resource Management (ENRM) through an examination of 72 evaluations conducted between 2010 and 2015. The evaluation synthesis shows that IFAD has taken a number of steps to strengthen its integration of ENRM issues into its operations – relating to both avoiding harm and doing good.
