This edition celebrates the 20th anniversary of the independence of our evaluation office by featuring interviews with the founding directors, Luciano Lavizzari and Oscar A. Garcia, who reflect on challenges and opportunities that apply to any evaluation function that seeks to establish and entrench independence. Select highlights include how IFAD leadership is acting upon the findings of the evaluation on decentralization; the Executive Board field mission to Uganda; the 10-year positive performance of IFAD projects in CCA; how IOE is leveraging neuroscience to ensure effective communication; how the post COVID-19 reality is calling for a reorientation of the evaluation profession; the call for holistic climate adaptation solutions at COP 28; and the closure of IOE’s first Evaluation Advisory Panel.

Independent Magazine brings to the forefront of the global development dialogue the major efforts undertaken by IOE, while seeking to advance IFAD’s vision of vibrant, inclusive and sustainable rural economies, where people live free from poverty and hunger. To present the richness of rural life, and detail facets of local community lifestyle, Independent Magazine also zooms in on cultural activities and landmark occurrences in countries featured by IOE’s evaluations.
