The Paris Declaration Team
The Paris Declaration, signed in 2005, is one of the most significant policy declarations in the world of development cooperation and one of the biggest challenges in the field of development evaluation. The evaluation of the implementation of the Paris Declaration is an integral part of the Declaration itself. The first phase of the evaluation, which was presented at the HLF in Accra, was an early evaluation and focused on ways of improving and enhancing implementation, rather than giving any definite judgement about effectiveness. The second phase of the evaluation was more summative and provided information about the end impacts and effects of increased aid effectiveness.
Kabell Konsulting carried out in 2007-2008 the First phase of the Evaluation of the Implementation of the Paris Declaration, and the Team Leader Bernard Wood presented the report to the High Level Forum in Accra in September 2008:
Kabell Konsulting was also chosen, through international competitive bidding, together with IOD-PARC to conduct the Second phase of the Evaluation, as part of a team of international consultants:

The MOPAN Assessment Team
The Multilateral Organisation Performance Assessment Network (MOPAN) was launched in 2002 as a network of like-minded donor countries for monitoring the performance of mulitlateral development organisations. The Network’s assessments identify strengths and areas for improvement in the multilateral organisations. Findings are used for discussions with the organisations and with their partners, and as ways to further build the organisations’ capacity to be effective.
The Network has taken steps over the last years to become more ambitious and professional, with a reshaped assessment approach, more organisations assessed and a permanent Secretariat, hosted by the OECD’s Development Co-operation Directorate in Paris since 2013.
IOD-PARC and Kabell Konsulting developed the new approach to assessments, MOPAN 3.0 This is a new operational and methodological iteration of how the Network will assess organisations; it was finalised and first implemented in 2015. Under MOPAN 3.0, the Network is assessing more organisations concurrently than previously, collecting data from more partner countries, and widening the range of organisations assessed over a two-year cycle.
The core team consist of:
In 2015-16, the following organisations were assessed in 16 partner countries:
A new cycle running from 2017-18 was launched in early 2017.
