Sida Studies in Evaluation 99/1 / Cases from Swedish Development Co-operation
This repport forms part of the study "Using the Evaluation Tool", initiated by Sida's Department for Evaluation and Internal Audit. The purpose of the study is to analyse the evaluation process as it currently works in Swedish development co-operation. It attempts to broaden our knowledge of the way in which evaluations are initiated, produced and, finally, distributed and put to use.
The study is complemented with a Management Response.
