What do we do?
Introduction to the Department for Independent Development Evaluation (IDEV)
An independent department
Supportive mission and objectives
With a comprehensive mandate
1. Conduct evaluations
3. Capacity development
The overarching mission of AfDB's independent evaluation is to "enhance the development effectiveness of the Bank"
Mandate covers the whole Bank, not only operations.
Independence is important for objectivity, avoiding conflict
of interest and credibility.
Evaluations are having an impact .......

Policy & guidelines

"...The Board of Directors and I are firm believers in the independence of evaluation and we want [evaluation] to feed back into what we do."
"I think that the work of IDEV goes beyond accountability. It is about how we can do things better; how we can do things differently."
