The German Institute for Development Evaluation (DEval)
The German Institute for Development Evaluation (DEval) is mandated by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) to independently analyse and assess German development cooperation. The Institute’s strategically and scientifically well-founded evaluation reports help make development results more transparent, and provide policymakers with a sounder basis on which to take decisions and make development policy effective. DEval is one of the German Government’s ministerial research institutes. It currently employs a workforce of around 70 and is led by Prof. Dr. Jörg Faust.
