  1. Complexity evaluation framework: Recognising complexity & key considerations for complexity-appropriate evaluation in the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA)

    Example
    2020

    Defra (the UK Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs) commissioned CECAN (the Centre for Evaluation Complexity Across the Nexus) to deliver a Complexity Evaluation Framework (CEF). The primary purpose of this framework is to equip Defra commissioners of evaluation (which may include analysts and policy makers), with a checklist of core considerations to ensure that evaluations are robust and sufficiently consider the implications of complexity theory. The framework is intended to increase the use and usability of evaluation for both commissioned and internally-led evaluation across the department. The final output is intended to be an actionable complexity evaluation framework, accompanied by a supporting evidence report to be used as a resource in commissioning evaluation.

    Global Integrity, in collaboration with Making All Voices Count, has compiled material from the Learning to Make All Voices Count program, in which they worked with six partners in five countries, and supported their efforts to develop and apply an adaptive, learning-centered approach to strengthening subnational citizen engagement in their contexts. There is a focus on complexity-aware MEL as a crucial component of this approach.
