IDF, along with the University of Groningen and the University of Wageningen in The Netherlands, conducted an evaluation for the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (WOTRO) between 2012 and 2014. The purpose of this evaluation was to assess the effectiveness, efficiency and relevance of development interventions funded by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs through Dutch Co-Financing Agencies to Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) working in India. The 32 CSOs that were assessed are spread across 11 Indian states and work on a wide range of issues including Education, Health, Gender, Economy, Poverty, Livelihood, Agriculture and Human Rights among others. The assessment used a mixed-methods approach, involving both qualitative and quantitative research methodologies. The validation of the findings was done through triangulation of information. The evaluation comprised a baseline assessment in 2012 and an end line assessment in 2014. The assessments were conducted in three categories of priority result areas as defined by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs: 1) achievement of Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and themes (10 projects); 2) capacity development of CSOs (12 CSOs); 3) efforts to strengthen civil society (10 CSOs).
