Key issues and lessons from Peer reviews
Mixed methods

  • Integration of methodologies – process, applications and managing workload
  • The need for both qualitative and quantitative – at the right time!
  • Open methodology
  • Don’t obsess about terminology or the name of the methodology/framework

Clarify (users and input from users)

  • Differentiate project partner/beneficiaries from evaluation users
  • Knowing your audience is key
  • Strengthening of methodologies thru user input (involvement)


  • Stakeholder fatigue – don’t over-consult using different methodologies
  • IDRC might have created some confusion between evaluation and research for its partners


  • Some research projects have not yet findings – not ready for outcomes evaluation
