The Board of Directors of the Global Development Network (GDN) commissioned an external evaluation in 2007. The aim of this external evaluation was to provide evidence on the strength of GDN's organizational processes while focusing on the impact of its activities. Multiple methods including desk reviews, contextual visits of partner and GDN-run workshops, interviews, online surveys of over 1,500 end users or stakeholders, and external reviews of GDN activity outputs were used in collecting data across a wide range of stakeholders. The results are detailed in the evaluation report.
