Each year, the IPDC Bureau selects a number of implemented projects to undergo external evaluation. Independent evaluators visit project sites and verify the achievements, paying particular attention to issues of cost-effectiveness and sustainability.

The reports that stem from these evaluations serve as a useful tool for measuring the impact of IPDC projects as well as identifying weaknesses that can be avoided in the future. Priority is given to projects that can potentially provide the most useful information for the identification, designing, selection and implementation of future projects.
