Raising Development Impact through Evaluation

Independent Evaluation

Evaluation is central to good corporate governance. ADB continually reviews its operations to assess their effectiveness, learn from past experience, and improve the development of future policies, strategies, programs, and projects.

In the Spotlight

Independent Evaluation at ADB

The Independent Evaluation Department (IED) independently and systematically evaluates ADB policies, strategies, operations, and special concerns that relate to organizational and operational effectiveness. By doing so, it contributes to achieving development effectiveness of ADB operations by providing evaluation feedback on performance, and generating and disseminating evaluation lessons.

There are two levels of evaluation in ADB:

  • self-evaluation, conducted by those responsible for designing and implementing a country strategy, program, or project
  • independent evaluation undertaken by IED
