New Publication of CDR Member

Samson Osei, PhD candidate at CDR, published a paper in the Africa Development Bank Evaluation Matters Magazine, titled "Value Addition of Organisational Evaluation".
Basically, the paper argues that evaluation of the organization as a unit of analysis remains a black box as opposed to project and programme evaluation in development evaluation practice.” Thus, a comprehensive evaluation of an organisation as a unit of analysis can help achieve the sustainable development goals. The paper can be accessed here.
