Development Evaluation Unit
Strengthening monitoring and evaluation across DFAT
Monitoring the performance of development investments and managing an evaluation requires significant knowledge, skill and experience. The Development Evaluation Unit (EVU) builds the capability of DFAT staff to plan and conduct evaluations, and monitor the performance of development investments.
Training and guidance
EVU builds organisational capability through contributing to the development and delivery of internal training on monitoring and evaluation. Guidance on how to manage an evaluation is included in DFAT’s Aid Programming Guide.
EVU also offers support to evaluation managers conducting program evaluations. We do this by:
- providing advice
- reviewing evaluation terms of reference, plans and reports
- participating in reference groups
- on occasion conducting individual program evaluations.
