  • 1. CGIAR Evaluation Community of Practice Workshop The CGIAR evaluation function: Progress so far and where does this feed into? September 2014
  • 2. CGIAR Evaluation Strategic Objective Ensuring that the evaluation function is a key and effective instrument of accountability and learning, fully contributing to the shaping and vision of the future CGIAR
  • 3. IEA = Who We Are • CGIAR system entity: small unit based in FAO • Reports to Fund Council through biannual meetings and Evaluation and Impact Assessment Committee (EIAC) • Operates in close consultation with Consortium Office • Works closely with Centers/CRPs • Collaborates with ISPC, including SPIA
  • 4. How IEA fits into to CGIAR
  • 5. IEA – Reviews & Evaluations 1 CRP evaluation completed + Mgmt Response Forests, Trees & Agroforestry 2 Reviews completed + Mgmt Response Generation Challenge Program CRP Governance & Management 4 ongoing CRP evaluations (TORs/IRs): PIM AAS WHEAT MAIZE 5 CRP evaluations in planning and preparatory work (TORs): CCAFS GRISP L&F RTB WLE
  • 6. CRP- Commissioned Evaluations • IEA structured support on quality assurance to 5 CRP Commissioned Evaluations (requested by FC) : – Dryland Cereals, Dryland Systems, Grain Legumes, A4NH, and HumidTropics • IEA support and guidance to CCEEs: – On-demand basis (planning, selection of consultants, TORs, evaluation governance) – Extensive use of IEA standards and guidance notes
  • 7. IEA Evaluations– timeline 2013 2014 2015 2016 Forests, Trees and Agroforestry Policies, Institutions & Markets Maize Wheat Aquatic Agricultural Systems Livestock and Fish Roots, Tubers, and Bananas Water, Land and Ecosystems Climate Change, Agri & Food Security Global Rice Science Partnership QA Support to 5 CRPS: Dryland Systems, Dryland Cereals, Grain Legumes, A4NH, and Humidtropics
  • 8. For Whom/ What Purpose? CRP Management • Learning for strategic management and adaptations and adjustments of program • Preparation: 2nd cycle of CRP proposals System-wide • System wide strategic management (MTR, SRF, 2nd call for funding) • Resource for system-wide evaluation Evaluation Donors • Accountability on program performance • Building trust and transparency • Strategic and informed decisions on portfolio and funding allocations Partners • Build trust and transparency • Accountability on partnership and program performance • Refinement of partnership
  • 9.

CRP extensions and 2nd call for proposals Consortium Board and Fund Council decision: • Extend (and refresh) the current CRPs to the end of 2016 (with Extension proposals for 2015-16 in 2014); • Develop proposals for the second stage with the benefit of the conclusions and recommendations of both the Mid-term Review of the Reform, and forms of external evaluation for all CRPs.
  • 11. CRP 2nd call for proposals: process • March 2015: CRPs submit Pre-Proposals on-line. • July - September 2015: Review by CO and ISPC and CRPs submit revised proposals • November 2015: CB and FC determine which proposals, and/or key components, are to be developed into full proposals • March 2016: invited CRPs submit Full Proposals • April - September 2016: six months for ISPC, CO, and FO and to review the proposals • September 2016: A full set of (a) CRP proposals; (b) ISPC reviews; and (c) CO FO, IEA evaluations available for review and feedback from CB and FC members • November 2016: CB and FC complete funding /approval decisions
  • 12. Scope of CRP Evaluation Broad scope: Relevance, QoS, Effectiveness, impacts, sustainability, efficiency Summative – Results of past research which is continuing in CRP Formative – Programmatic approach in enhancing relevance and efficiency of CRP – Likelihood of effectiveness to contribute to SRF vision, SLOs and outcomes
  • 13. Monitoring and impact assessment feed into evaluation Uptake, Influence Outcomes Adoption SPIA Inputs Progress CRP E V A L U A T I O N Impact O u t p u t s - 10-20 years - 5-10 years- 4-8 years Current research
  • 14. Some challenges • The evaluand: is a moving target: several iterations of structural changes since the initial proposal • Monitoring and Evaluation capacity and systems uneven across CGIAR – The “building blocks” are not there • No clear accountability and learning framework at CRP and system levels
  • 15. The role of the Evaluation Community of Practice in meeting our strategic objective
  • 16. • Strengthen the culture of evaluation across CGIAR • Network and share information • Build capacity and strengthen coordinated planning and cooperation • Strengthen the collective voice of evaluation in the system
