Advocacy efforts in the IDA 17 replenishment process


In 2013, International Alert sought to influence the outcome of the seventeenth replenishment round of the International Development Association (IDA), or IDA 17. Part 1 of this evaluation assesses Alert’s impact on the IDA 17 replenishment round, and in particular whether Alert contributed to changes adopted within the official results monitoring system, including new indicators relating to the IDA’s engagement in fragile and conflict-affected situations. Part 2 provides a summary of lessons learned on how to assess the impact of advocacy work using innovative evaluation methodologies, in order to improve Alert’s overall approach to evaluating the effectiveness of our advocacy programmes.
