Reports on effectiveness

Reports on effectiveness examine the achievement by Switzerland's international cooperation projects and programmes of objectives regarding a specific priority theme over a longer period.

Since reports on effectiveness say little about the efficiency and sustainability of projects and programmes, they were discontinued in 2019 in favour of more thematic evaluations.

The evaluations in the reports of effectiveness were mainly based on project documentation and were carried out by independent external experts on behalf of the SDC.

Some reports on effectiveness were accompanied by short videos summarising results in the featured thematic area.
