Abstract [en]

The Swedish Agency for Public Management has produced a harsh assessment of SADEV, the independent evaluation set up in Karlstad by the Swedish government in 2006. It points to a lack of capacity to deliver, no functioning quality assurance system, lousy management, a strong focus on procedures instead of results, no real results after 6 years.

Against this background, the authors propose, that the Swedish government should take the so-called Paris Agenda seriously and together with other donors set up an evaluation unit in Africa. This unit should then hire researchers from both donor and receiving countries to do scientifically based evaluations on foreign aid.
