Developing Evaluation and Communication Capacity in Information Society Research (DECI-2)In July 2012, DECI-2, a four-year long, global level project was launched. It built on the previous DECI-1 work (2011-12) and is unique in linking UFE with Research Communication. The team of two Co-Principal Investigators, a Communications Advisor and six regional UFE and ResCom mentors mentored IDRC projects in Asia, Africa, Latin America; the approach has also been adapted for initiatives in Canada. DECI-2 has been evaluated externally with positive results.

Inter-Thematic Evaluation of FORUT’s 2014-2018 Multi-Year Program (India, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Malawi, Zambia), 2017-2018The Inter-Thematic evaluation reviewed the three thematic (policy) areas covered by FORUT (Alcohol, Drugs & Development – ADD; Children Rights, CR; and Gender Equity, GE), with specific attention to the interconnections and synergies across the seven programmes in Africa and Asia. The evaluation included several uses: as a learning tool; as a supplement for future FORUT-NORAD agreements; and as a conceptual and practical understanding of the theory of change underpinning the three interrelated thematic areas.
Evaluation of the CAP-YEI Empowerment Institute, Kenya, 2015The final utilization-focused evaluation of the 5-year competency-based, vocational youth training project that ended in 2016. The evaluation was both summative in that it captured the achievements and lessons of the first project, and formative in that the findings helped shape a subsequent project. A journal article was published summarizing the process. An ensuing developmental evaluation, under the leadership of our Kenya team member started in 2017 and is ongoing.
