This report supports the activities of the ECG's Working Group on Evaluation Recommendations, Management Responses and Feedback Loops. The objectives of the Working Group are two-fold. First, it aims to take stock of if and how the evaluation functions of Evaluation Cooperation Group (ECG) members and observers:

  • Formulate and issue evaluation recommendations;
  • Obtain responses to evaluation recommendations from management;
  • Engage the Board with evaluation recommendations;
  • Follow-up on the implementation of evaluation recommendations; and
  • Draw on feedback loops to improve the formulation of evaluation recommendations and their implementation.

Second, the Working Group aims to identify lessons for promoting the recurrence of desirable outcomes in the aforementioned stages in the evaluation process, while precluding the recurrence of undesirable outcomes.
