Evaluation SDC's Research Related Activities

This independent evaluation of Swiss Development Cooperation (SDC) support for research related activities focuses on four sets of issues:

Policy: Assessment of relevance and adequacy of SDC's strategies and policies.

Portfolio: Assessment of relevance of the strategic orientation and composition of SDC's research.

Results: Assessment of research results against policy objectives in terms of relevance, quality, utilisation and developing country research capacity building.

Management: Assessment of the quality of SDC's management of its research activities including assessment of its decentralised management approach, and its promotion of research partnerships.

Seven methods were used to obtain the necessary evidence: 1) a review of policy and legal documentation, 2) key informant interviews in Switzerland, 3) electronic questionnaire surveys of SDC staff, Swiss researchers, and research partners in the south, 4) an analysis of the research portfolio, 5) a review of project documentation (10% sample), 6) a review of existing evaluations of SDC research activities, and 7) case studies illustrating the working of different SDC research funding instruments.
