The social development bank in Europe

The Evaluation Department conducts evaluations of CEB-financed projects and programmes with the aim of contributing to the Bank’s social development mandate by: (i) strengthening accountability through impartial assessment of the performance of CEB-financed operations; and (ii) contributing to learning, through dissemination of knowledge gained from evaluation work and its feedback into subsequent project preparation and appraisal. The Department is independent from the Bank’s operational services and reports directly to CEB’s Governor, who transmits evaluation reports to the Administrative Council.
