Our Global Network
Across the developing world, there has been an increasing demand for evidence-informed decision-making by governments, development practitioners, donors, and program funders. Through both harmonized and tailored products and services, the CLEAR Centers aim to build sustainable in-country monitoring and evaluation systems and frameworks.
CLEAR Centers have a unique way of building capacity through in-country collaboration with local partners, including government agencies, academic institutions, and civil society organizations. We work with civil society to help generate awareness and demand for M&E services.
We also partner with local academic institutions and VOPEs to share experiences and to enhance our collective capacity to provide evaluation capacity development (ECD) support at the local, national, and regional level.
CLEAR’s six regional Centers and two Affiliate Centers are based on South-South collaboration and are backed by prestigious academic institutions recognized for their excellence in the evaluation field. The Centers are coordinated through the Global Evaluation Initiative (GEI), which manages donor funding, offers strategic guidance, and promotes learning and collaboration at a global level.
Our mission and vision
CLEAR's mission is to improve policy, planning, and implementation through strengthening M&E systems and capacities. We innovate and learn locally and regionally and share and inspire globally.
We do that with a shared vision: to promote better development outcomes through increased evaluation capacity, learning, and use of evidence.
