Evaluating Development Philanthropy in a Changing World

by Robert Picciotto

Nov 1, 2011
This essay explores the development landscape, suggests new policy directions for international philanthropic organisations and examines the challenges involved in evaluating their development assistance efforts. Next, it complies with the well-established development effectiveness criteria of relevance, effectiveness, efficiency, and sustainability issued by the Development Assistance Committee of the OECD in order to sketch an evaluation agenda designed to enhance accountability, organisational learning and responsiveness to stakeholders' concerns within the philanthropic sector.
