Since 2001, both the discourse and the practice of evaluation have evolved in response to changes taking place in development as a whole.

Increasing calls for institutional accountability and the need for learning at all levels of development, at the same time as a growing emphasis on multilateral as opposed to bilateral development aid, are calling for new approaches to evaluation. The 11 articles in this book have been written by leading experts and thinkers in the field of evaluation, and provide varying perspectives on this rapidly changing context. In an often innovative and challenging way, they identify and discuss the new trends and challenges facing evaluators and their institutions
