Independent Evaluations


External evaluations of CDKN’s work provide valuable insights into our operations – what we do well, what we can improve upon. They are also an important accountability measure, based on rigorous third-party examination of our activities.

Mid-Term Review

Progress against CDKN’s logframe outputs, outcomes and progress towards impact has been assessed through an independent mid-term review, which concluded in March 2013. These findings were used to inform the 2012-13 CDKN Annual Review, completed in May 2013.

This summary paper highlights the main findings and recommendations from the Mid Term Review.

End of Year Five Evaluation

Progress against CDKN’s logframe outputs, outcomes and progress towards impact was re-assessed through an independent End of Year Five Evaluation review, which concluded in May 2015. These findings were used to inform the 2014-15 CDKN Annual Review, completed in June 2015.

The executive summary is available, along with the full report, and our management response can be found here..

ICAI Evaluations

CDKN have been reviewed twice by the Independent Commission for Aid Impact (ICAI), once in 2013 as part of their review into DFID’s use of contractors, which can be read here, and more recently in 2014 as part of their review of the ICF, which can be read here.
