The National Evaluation Policy Landscape in Africa: A Comparison

This policy brief examines key elements of national evaluation policies among selected African countries with a view to inform policy-makers on good practices for the development of such policies. This brief draws from a comparative study conducted by CLEAR-AA in 2018 of the status of national evaluation policies of South Africa, Nigeria, Zimbabwe, Uganda, and Kenya. In addition, a desktop review of the national evaluation policies was conducted. For comparative purposes of the policies, two analytical frameworks were utilised: Segone, Bamberger and Reddy; and Holvoet and Renard’s framework for effective national evaluation systems.
