Information and Networks (I&N) Program Review Panel: external review final report
Type of work: Report
The 2011-2016 period marks the implementation term of the IDRC’s Information and Networks (I&N) Program, which seeks to enable greater understanding of how information networks affect citizens in developing countries, especially those belonging to marginalized communities. This evaluation reports on coherence, effectiveness and appropriateness of the implementation of the I&N Program Prospectus. Focusing on the evolution of the program’s strategy and implementation, findings show that the I&N Program has been managed in line with what was envisaged. Priorities were established and changes made in a thoughtful manner, with convincing rationales provided where divergences occurred away from original intentions.
