Generating knowledge and sharing learnings for improvement is strategically important to achieve our goals and realise our vision.
Evaluations generate lessons learned and knowledge for future decisions. By conducting evaluations, we find out if we are doing the right activities, if we are doing those activities well, and, if we are doing them for the right persons. They help us, and our partners, know how we can jointly improve the quality and impact of our work.
Evaluations also help us to be accountable to our target groups, partner organisations and donors through assessing whether we delivered what we promised and whether we spent our funds in the best possible way.
Below you will find summaries of evaluations at various levels, ranging from evaluations of specific projects to evaluations of evaluations, among others. These files are also available for search and download within the Resources & Publications section of our website.
Meta Evaluation of 24 CBM Project Evaluations
CBM International commissioned the independent Center for Evaluation (CEval Germany) to conduct a synthesis of a sample of 24 project evaluations. The evaluations took place in 2016 and 2017 and spread across CBM’s project regions and initiatives.
The purpose of the synthesis was to gain a broader understanding of achievements of CBM supported interventions (projects) and to learn from recurring findings and recommendations. It assessed the usage of evaluations by project and partner staff to enhance the utility of evaluations.
Evaluation of CBM Eye-Health Programmes
In 2017, a CBM team of eye health specialists, as well as evaluation and disability-inclusive development advisors, conducted a synthesized evaluation of CBM-supported inclusive eye health programmes in six countries (Cambodia, Egypt, Ethiopia, Indonesia, Pakistan and Vietnam). The results were published in the Asia-Pacific Journal of Ophthalmology in 2018, and as a poster-presentation during the Asia-Pacific Academy of Ophthalmology in Hong Kong.
