Evaluation Unit

IDRC commissions external program reviews toward the end of each program cycle. These final evaluations are our primary accountability mechanism in terms of the results, effectiveness, and relevance of program spending.

External program reviews aim to:

  • account to IDRC’s Board of Governors for the implementation of the program prospectus
  • provide input into programming for learning and improvement

In 2012, we commissioned a review of the Climate Change Adaptation in Africa program.
