Inter-American Foundation (IAF) has hired the Centre for Social Policy of
the Getúlio Vargas Foundation in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, to carry out the
evaluation of several development projects in Latin America, entirely or
partially funded by the IAF. This website provides information to
evaluators both on completed evaluations, but more importantly, it
provides relevant data for current evaluations. All projects are organized
according to standardized IAF codes, e.g. VZ-182, to facilitate
identification. The content of this website will be updated as new data
and information are generated.
mid-2005, the Centre for Social Policy concluded the impact evaluation of
twelve projects funded by the IAF. In this website, you will find the
evaluation final reports, assessing the achievement of project goals and
their impact on their beneficiaries, as well as the lessons learned by the
grantee organizations during the implementation and completion of the
this moment, various evaluators are carrying out the assessment of twelve
projects spread out around Latin America, also financed by the IAF.
Project goals range from an increase in the income of small-scale
producers in Tlaxcala in Mexico, to help for low-income, rural Nicaraguans
affected by Hurricane Mitch to recover productive capacity, and prevent
future environmental disasters.
