Monitoring and Evaluation

Development cooperation is facing new challenges in an international context increasingly complex and changing, characterized by an increasing number of actors and stakeholders involved. Evaluation is critical to make development cooperation more effective at reducing poverty and supporting economic growth and social inclusion.

In 2004 the ITPCM established a dedicated Evaluation Unit, carrying out intensive research coupled with technical assistance services geared towards the monitoring and evaluation of projects and programmes of development cooperation.

In 10 years considerable experience has been gained by the Unit that, taking into account ex ante, interim, final and ex-post evaluations, has carried out evaluations of more than 1,000 projects whose total value is over 150 million Euro.

Projects and programmes evaluated spanned across a broad number of sectors, targeted different actors, and were financed by different donors such as ministries, international organizations, private foundations, business actors and regional and local authorities.

So far several evaluation missions have been undertaken in the following countries: Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Brazil, Croatia, Eritrea, Lebanon, Macedonia, Nicaragua, Peru, Central African Republic, Senegal, Serbia and South Africa.
