Recurring errors in public policies and major projects: contributions and solutions from evaluation
Hello dear Community,
I hope that you are all doing well.
The topic I am proposing today concerns the main errors made in the design of public policies, especially those with a big social impact, or concerning major rural development projects (roads, electricity supply, telecommunications, dams, etc.):
- What are the most common mistakes made in your country?
- To what extent do you think these mistakes could have been avoided with better use of evaluation, or that evaluation could contribute to the success of policies and major development projects?
- Have the results of evaluations allowed to amend the failures of public policies and development projects?
- Have public policies and projects developed subsequent to the conducted evaluations taken into account previous errors and corrections?
Thank you all for the quality of the exchanges and the important responsiveness of the community!
