What are the key reflections that the wider evaluation community developed when adapting processes and methods to the new conditions created by the outbreak of the first global pandemic ever of the modern era?

What did we learn from Evaluation in Crisis?

The Evaluation Support Service (ESS) at the EC, DG International Partnership is happy to share with the wide evaluation community the key lessons we learnt from the initiative EvalCrisis.

We structured them in 6 themes and different topics: (i) Fluidity of context, (ii) Ethics, (iii) Adaptive evaluations, (iv) Local evaluation skills, (v) Methods and tools and (vi) Remote techniques.

In the words of Mr Félix Fernández-Shaw, Director for Sustainable Development Policy and Coordination at the EC, DG International Partnerships: “We want these lessons learnt to be food for thought in further enhancing our capacity to improve evaluations and to inform better policies, even beyond the Covid-19 crisis”.
