CLEAR Annual Report 2014-2015
As the pages of this annual report reflect, CLEAR has established a global presence with a common cause – engaging in evaluation capacity development and learning from that experience. Although the current report focuses on the specific accomplishments for FY15 (July 2014-June 2015) Center by Center and by the Global Hub, they are the result of longer-term developments, and they highlight how CLEAR aims to contribute to the objective of strengthened M&E systems.
Over time, CLEAR Centers have developed and nurtured partnerships, experimented with and broadened their approaches to capacity development, and strengthened their own capacity to deliver, together with business development locally (for paid services) – all of which have contributed substantially to strengthening the evaluation profession and client organizations’ capacity for M&E. The trajectory in this direction has not been linear and has depended on learning by doing. Nonetheless, as the following pages illustrate, the experiences over time have translated gradually into CLEAR as a whole becoming a more confident and established program with tangible effects on the ground.
