Devolving Programs (2009)

April 25, 2016

Over the past two decades, the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) has established and subsequently devolved or closed 15 to 20 international secretariats and quasi-secretariats. As IDRC is pursuing the devolution of two program initiatives, senior management requested that past experience with devolution be examined to see what lessons could be gleaned. The primary objective of this evaluation is to develop guiding principles that could inform future devolution practice.
