In 2013, the AfDB adopted a new Independent Evaluation Strategy (2013-2017) in a bid to continue to meet its evolving needs for evaluative knowledge. In line with the AfDB Independent Evaluation Policy, the evaluation strategy focuses on three complementary objectives: learning, accountability, and promoting an evaluation culture in support of the overarching goal of improving development effectiveness.
