Comparative analysis of lessons identified in SSR-related evaluations

Project soon to be launched

While many international actors have been conducting evaluations of individual interventions, efforts to develop a cumulative body of lessons identified from SSR-related evaluations both within and across donor agencies have been scarce. Since lessons are typically considered in isolation, there is a lack of knowledge on patterns of lessons across evaluations. In addition, processes and mechanisms designed to promote the dissemination and application of lessons are often weak with the result that many lessons are shelved or ignored.

The purpose of this study is to contribute to enhancing organisational learning by conducting a comparative analysis of lessons presented in evaluation reports. It aims to extract, classify and summarise lessons identified in the evaluations collected for the project on Enhancing the measurement of the impact of SSR support: Comparative analysis of SSR-related evaluations to support more evidence-based programming.
