We have in-house evaluation expertise as well as access to a broad network of experienced evaluation consultants worldwide.

In our work, we follow international best practices, such as the OECD DAC Quality Standards for Development Evaluation, providing expert, customised evaluation design, implementation, and reporting. Beyond producing assessments, we guide our clients, helping them understand and act on the evaluation results.

  • Lessons Learnt Review of the Hutan Harapan Rainforest Project, Sumatra, Indonesia (2016). Indufor was engaged by the Danish International Development Agency (DANIDA) to conduct a ‘lessons learnt’ review of the Hutan Harapan Rainforest Project – the first Ecosystem Restoration Concession (ERC) established in Indonesia. The review involved extensive consultation with DANIDA, Burung Indonesia (the organisation responsible for managing Hutan Harapan), the Ministry of Environment and Forestry, and a range of other stakeholders with interests in the development of ERCs in Indonesia. The final deliverables comprised a report and handbook with lessons learned for application to other ERCs across Indonesia.
  • Final Evaluation of the Regional Biodiversity Programme for the Amazon Region of the Andean Community (BioCAN, 2010-2013). The evaluation aimed at assessing the relevance of the program in the regional Andean-Amazon context, focusing on its coherence and complementarity with national and regional policies and other similar interventions. The evaluation encompassed the four Andean Community Member States: Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru.
