The Independent Office of Evaluation of IFAD (IOE), in collaboration with the International Rescue Committee (IRC), organized a Seminar on Building an Evidence-based Result Framework: The case of the International Rescue Committee.
IRC has made a commitment for 100 per cent of its interventions to become evidence-based or evidence-generating in all its programming by 2020. To achieve this, IRC undertook an extensive evidence mapping programme to develop the Outcomes to Evidence Framework (OEF), a tool that clearly defines the outcomes IRC aims to achieve and the corresponding pathways or theories of change, and synthesizes the evidence of what works to achieve these outcomes.
This seminar took place on 31 January 2020. This event discussed the OEF and other efforts to increase the use of evidence, the challenges and successes experienced to date and lessons for other agencies wishing to adopt a more evidence-based approach.
The seminar was delivered by Sheree Bennett Kullenberg, Senior Research and Evidence Advisor at the IRC. Ms Kullenberg leads the IRC’s global strategy to increase the use of evidence in strategic and programmatic decision-making. She has over 12 years of research and evaluation experience, with a focus on the politics of service delivery, peace-building and participatory approaches to local development.
