The Independent Summative Evaluation of the Global Partnership for Education aims to help shape the latter’s post-2020 strategy by drawing lessons from its performance since 2015.
In addition, the evaluation is a means through which GPE aims to be transparent and accountable for its actions and results. The evaluation was conducted in two stages. Stage one (August – December 2019) primarily involved a desk study into the broader development and organizational effectiveness of GPE. During this initial desk study, various evidence gaps were identified and prioritized for further investigation in stage two (January – April 2020), based on their relevance for GPE’s post-2020 strategy.
