Meet the Funding Partners

The Global Evaluation Initiative (GEI) is supported by generous funding partners that contribute to a trust fund managed by the Independent Evaluation Group of the World Bank Group. GEI works closely with our funding partners to maximize our impact, and we gratefully acknowledge their guidance and continued support. 

In addition to supporting GEI financially, our funding partners also carry out a variety of evaluation capacity development (ECD) initiatives under the GEI umbrella. These activities include partnering with local and regional stakeholders, promoting evaluation and the use of evidence in global platforms, serving on advisory boards for global ECD initiatives, and more.

  • Swedish International Development Cooperation Authority 
  • Ministry of Foreign Affairs, The Netherlands

  • Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Finland

“Danida mainly contributes to development results through our national implementing partners. The capacity of our national partners to monitor and evaluate outcomes of our contributions is key for the success of Danish development assistance in our priority countries. GEI will be an important platform to develop these capacities in partnership with other development partners”

“Support to the development of evaluation capacity, both in the Netherlands and in partner countries, is one of the statutory tasks as defined in the IOB protocol. We are looking forward to teaming up with like-minded organizations in order to increase the coherence and efficiency of our ECD interventions.”
