The philosophy of a policy evaluation can be understood through three questions:
-What have we done so far?
-Did we do it well?
-How can we be better?
In other words, this kind of mission aims at looking in the past in order to enhance effects of future interventions.
Different steps of the policy implementation have to be brought to light in order to be clear on what should be evaluated and which stakeholders should be involved in the process. Changing contexts imply to continuously develop innovative and appropriate tools. In any case, common denominators of policy evaluations are: to bring a global overview of the nature and projects implemented; to enhance the use of funds by shedding light on positive and negative mechanisms; to help for a better positioning of each players involved in the next programmation.
