We evaluate our work

Internally and externally executed topic-based evaluations are important tools which we can harness to make DEG's work even more effective. Insights gained from these evaluations help us, and our customers, to accompany future private commitments in a more focused manner, and enable us to further develop our Development Effectiveness Rating on an ongoing basis. Joint evaluations with other European development financiers serve to advance learning across all institutions.
