The EUEI PDF has a well-developed monitoring and evaluation (M&E) system for its advisory activities (see below). The M&E system is applied throughout project development and implementation to track results and to constantly inform and improve the planning and management of the EUEI PDF’s projects.
A selection of EUEI PDF activities undergo external evaluations conducted annually by independent consultants. These external project evaluations are carried out according to the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development/Development Assistance Committee (OECD/DAC) criteria, with the key indicators being relevance, effectiveness, efficiency, impact and sustainability. The evaluations provide recommendations for improvements to the EUEI PDF’s ongoing and planned interventions.
