This guest post from Caroline Heider (Director General and Senior Vice President, Evaluation, World Bank Group) was originally posted in the IEG's #WhatWorks blog. In this post, Caroline reflects on the motivations behind her 2017 Rethinking Evaluation blog series, which was dedicated to unpacking and debating the DAC evaluation criteria, and how this series links with the consultation process recently launched by the DAC Network on Development Evaluation to review the criteria. We've reposted this blog on BetterEvaluation because we believe that this is an important conversation to have, and we encourage our readers to get involved in the consultation process.

OECD-DAC Principles for Evaluation of Development Assistance

The OECD/DAC Network on Development Evaluation has updated the Evaluation Criteria definitions and Principles for use after 25 years. The goal of the criteria is to support better evaluation that in turn leads to better policies to advance both the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (including the Sustainable Development Goals) and the Paris Agreement within the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.
