Disseminating Evaluations

Creative Communications for Evaluation Dissemination

This space is created to help you promote evaluation findings in a way that is attractive and communicative by exploring different options, guides and good practice examples at the EU level and externally.

An INTPA/ESS study on EU evaluation dissemination suggests that the most innovative ways to communicate evaluation results, besides organising seminars or webinars, include infographics, briefs, videos, blogs and podcasts, among others.

Please find below some ‘Good Practice Examples’ from different EU offices, findings of the INTPA/ESS study in a dynamic report, and How-To Guides on creating different Dissemination Knowledge Products.



Background of the study: In the first semester of 2020, the Evaluation Support Service of DG DEVCO conducted a study to examine and document the current situation regarding how the knowledge generated from evaluation of the international development and co-operation interventions is being translated and disseminated to a wide variety of stakeholders to ensure ‘evaluations influence change’, in line with DG DEVCO’s Evaluation Policy (Evaluation Matters, 2014). Related to this, the study captures examples of good dissemination practice within DG DEVCO and non-EU institutions such as the Asian Development Bank, African Development Bank, International Fund for Agricultural Development, World Food Programme, Global Environment FacilityGreen Climate Fund, InsighShareUN Women, UNICEF, UNFPA, Y Care International and Oxfam.

A detailed report on the findings of the study and its recommendations is also available on request. Please write to the ESS team to have a copy of the full report.

Further support: Should you need any support in the management of your evaluations, including advice on ways to best disseminate their results, the ESS helpdesk remains at your full disposal and can be reached at helpdesk@evaluationsupport.eu. Please do not hesitate to contact them and share your examples of evaluation dissemination: we would be happy to publish them in this C4D space!
