EC EVALSED: The resource for the evaluation of socio-economic development

Back

Evalsed is an online resource providing guidance on the evaluation of socio-economic development. It promotes exchange of experience and good practice as well as increasing the relevance of evaluation in decision-making. Whilst the resource has a specific focus on evaluation in EU cohesion policy, it is also relevant to the evaluation of other socio-economic development tools.

Evalsed consists of two parts: THE GUIDE and three SOURCEBOOKS.

  • The GUIDE is designed primarily for decision-makers - specifically those who design and manage evaluations in order to enhance decision making on socio-economic development policies. It defines the role of evaluation in socio-economic development, discusses various ways to develop evaluation capacity, elaborates on evaluation methods as well as providing guidance on how to design and implement evaluations and how to ensure their quality.
  • The SOURCEBOOKS are of particular interest to practitioners and those wishing to impart or acquire evaluation skills. The three SOURCEBOOKS cover the following issues: evaluation approaches for particular themes and policy areas, evaluation methods and techniques and evaluation capacity building.The first SOURCEBOOK on themes and policy areas is under reconstruction.
