Abstract

This paper reviews the institutionalization process and use of evaluation evidences in the planning processes in Nepal. It reviews evaluation reports of 29 projects or programmes of various sectors conducted engaging independent evaluators during 1995-2012. It concludes that reform to effectively institutionalize and promote use of evaluations need to be implemented as a part of overall performance management and accountability reform and  the uses of evaluations increase if the evaluation system is designed as a consistent and integrated feature of the development planning process aiming to correct the entire planning cycle. Promotion of evaluation culture at various levels, securing a higher level policy commitment and addressing capacity gaps in managing evaluations are key attributes to promote utilization of evaluations.

Key words: evaluation, use, performance management, Nepal
