Quotes

"At least58 million children worldwide are still out of school. The international development community knows very well that educating children especially girls is one of the most impactful development interventions,with benefits for health, the economy and stability. Yet despite this need, UNESCO reported this year that donor countries have reduced official development assistance for education by 10 percent since 2010. "The Global Partnership for Education is the only multilateral and multisectoral partnership devoted to the mission of galvanizing and coordinating a global effort to deliver a good quality education to all girls and boys, andprioritizing the poorest and most vulnerable. Since it was established in 2002, GPE partners have helped to get nearly 22 million more children in school, including 10 million girls. In 2011, 72 percent of girls in GPE partner countries finished primary school, compared to just 55 percent in 2002.""
"From the Asian Development Bank to the U S Agency for International Development, donors across the board are beginning to embed impact evaluations into their practices. "Widely seen as a key tool for promoting aid effectiveness, impact evaluations are designed to examine whether specific programs produce a measurable development impact. For instance, an impact evaluation of the Philippines World Bank- and ADB-funded conditional cash transfer program demonstrated gains in reducing stunting in children and increases in school enrolment. "Yet amid the increasing use of impact evaluations in the donor community, one key question is often overlooked: How much do they actually cost? "Five hundred thousand dollars is the average cost of an impact evaluation, Vinod Thomas, director general of the ADBs independent evaluation department, estimated in response to a question from Devex at an impact evaluation conference hosted by the bank at its Manila headquarters." By Lorenzo Piccio, Devex, 04 September 2014 "
...In Nepal, where collection and use of farmyard manure is common, farmers apply urine directly to the soil. "We need to start moving towards the application of urine in combination with compost" Shrestha told SciDev.Net
...The implementing organisation has moved on, leaving the community right back where it started. So a new NGO moves in and starts the process over. "In the end, the biggest problem in communities becomes not the lack of water but the multiplicity of systems that exist in one country - all of them broken down" says Jenda Terpstra, a communications consultant at IRC...
