“Development and Cooperation – EuropeAid” (http://ec.europa.eu/europeaid/index_en.htm) is a new Directorate–General (DG) responsible for designing EU development policies and delivering aid through programmes and projects across the world. It incorporates the former Development and Europeaid DGs. Having one DG will simplify communication in the development field by acting as a “one stop shop” – providing a single contact point for stakeholders inside and outside the EU to deal with.
The Evaluation Unit is in charge of the evaluation of the European Union’s cooperation and development programmes in third countries. It covers all geographical regions and the corresponding EC external cooperation programmes.
Dennis Bours, team leader of the SEA Change Community of Practice, has colleted some key files to give an overview of EuropeAid’s documents relating to monitoring and evaluation here:
