Meta-Evaluation of CGIAR External Program and Management Reviews (EPMRs)

The meta-evaluation capitalizes on the opportunity to review EPMRs conducted for 11 of the 15 CG centers within a relatively compressed time frame (2003-2006). From the analysis of the reviews, complemented by discussions with a cross-section of DGs, board chairs, panel chairs and donors, the reviewers were able to identify issues of framework, process and content.
