CIDT is conducting an independent evaluation of the Commonwealth Secretariat’s Strategic Plan 2013/14-16/17. The purpose of this evaluation is to assess the prioritization, relevance to the Commonwealth’s needs, effectiveness and impact of the Secretariat’s projects and programmes.
Covering the three years of the plan’s implementation, the evaluation will provide an independent opinion on the design of the Plan, implementation approach and results of the Strategic Plan. It will also make recommendations from both the strategic and operational perspectives that will directly input into the Strategic Plan 2017/18 – 2021/22.
CIDT staff members Ella Haruna, Kimberly Kane and Mary Surridge will be engaged in this work. It will involve a literature review, consultations with personnel of the Secretariat, and interviews with key stakeholders including selected Member countries.
