Global Mapping of the Status of National Evaluation Policies 2021

This report by the Global Parliamentarian Forum for Evaluation (GPFE) provides information on the status of national evaluation policies (NEPs) and systems by country. 

It is noteworthy to see there are many developments in NEPs in many countries and more countries have endorsed NEP compared to the past: in 2013 there were 20 countries with an NEP and in 2021 there are 35, with 10 countries currently awaiting legislative approval of their policies. NEPs vary from country to country to suit the context. Like the previous studies, this study found 21 countries that routinely conduct evaluation with no NEP. Several countries have sectorial evaluation requirements but no NEP. In others, specific states that have statewide policies but no NEP. Some countries have an NEP and in addition, have sectorial policies.
