IEG Releases Guide on Evaluation of International Development Interventions

IEG Guidebook

IEG recently released a guidebook for evaluators that provides an introductory overview of a range of methods that have been selected for their actual and potential use in the field of international development evaluation.

For each method, a detailed guidance note presents the method’s main features and procedural steps, key advantages and disadvantages, as well as its applica­bility. Each guidance note includes references for relevant background readings (basic and advanced) as well as references to other additional resources of interest. Both the choice of approaches and methods and the associated guidance are by no means definitive.

IEG plans to periodically update the guide as evaluation prac­tices evolve.
