USAID (2019). Implementing Developmental Evaluation: A Practical Guide for Funders
While geared toward people responsible for commissioning a developmental evaluation (DE), the guidance offered in this resource can be adapted to different contexts. Using a modular format, the guide provides detailed direction for all stages of planning, implementing and reporting on DE.
This resource may have value for those interested in the logistics of operationalizing DE. It includes practical advice and tools for assessing whether the context and program are an appropriate fit for DE, scoping and budgeting for DE, engaging a developmental evaluator and managing implementation. Project teams may find the examples of possible DE deliverables and types of outcomes useful.
