Strengthening national evaluation capacities

Strengthening national evaluation capacities refers to the ways in which an evaluation can have broader value beyond a single evaluation report by increasing national capacities.

Some ways evaluations can strengthen national evaluation capacities include enhancing skills and knowledge in evaluation, strengthening evidence-based decision-making cultures, and fostering stakeholder collaboration and coordination.

National evaluation capacities is one of the standards developed by the United Nations Evaluation Group and intended to cover all UN evaluations:

"NORM 9 National evaluation capacities

13. The effective use of evaluation can make valuable contributions to accountability and learning and thereby justify actions to strengthen national evaluation capacities. In line with General Assembly resolution A/RES/69/237 on building capacity for the evaluation of development activities at the country level, national evaluation capacities should be supported upon the request of Member States."
