Evalsed is an online resource providing guidance on the evaluation of socio-economic development. While Evalsed has a specific focus on evaluation in EU cohesion policy, it is also relevant to the evaluation of other socio-economic development tools.

Evalsed consists of two parts: THE GUIDE and a SOURCEBOOK

The GUIDE is designed primarily for decision-makers - specifically those who design and manage evaluations to enhance decision making on socio-economic development policies. It defines the role of evaluation in socio-economic development, discusses various ways to develop evaluation capacity and elaborates on evaluation approaches as well as providing guidance on how to design and implement evaluations and how to ensure their quality.
