This evaluation has been commissioned by the Independent Evaluation Arrangement (IEA) of CGIAR. Following consultation with the ISP and CCAFS management, the Evaluation addressed four key evaluation questions. 1) How well is strategic collaboration and integration both within and outside the CGIAR being achieved? 2) To what extent is CCAFS generating unique international public goods for agriculture, food security and climate change? 3) How well do the Flagship Projects link together and combine at output and outcome levels in the regions; and, to what extent are successes toward outcomes transferable from region to region? 4) How robust are the monitoring, evaluation and learning processes of the Program? As its main approach, the Evaluation selected nine projects for case studies to address the evaluation criteria and questions at three levels: global Program level, Flagship level and Regional Program level. The methodology also included document review, field visits to all regions, interviews of over 150 stakeholders, survey of CCAFS researchers, identification of exemplary cases of CCAFS work with high impact potential using a triple loop learning analysis, bibliometric analysis and H-index analysis of senior researchers. An independent third-party review team contributed to the evaluation of quality of science by assessing a random sample of journal articles published by CCAFS.
