Sida uses these evaluations as a tool for decision making and learning. All evaluations are published electronically on Sida's publication database.
The evaluation of Sweden’s development assistance is carried out on two levels:
- Each department and team at Sida evaluates its development assistance efforts within its own area of responsibility.
- The Unit for Monitoring and Evaluation has a broader and greater responsibility, focusing on assuring the quality of the evaluations and planning and commissioning more thematic and strategic evaluations, usually in co-operation with other international evaluation organizations.
Sida has had a management response system in place since 1999. This system requires that Sida responds to and in cases acts on the results and recommendations the evaluations produce. A number of these responses can be found in Sida’s publication database.
