Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade
The Office of Development Effectiveness (ODE) is an independent unit within Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, whose work contributes to evidence and debate about aid effectiveness. ODE’s work spans three key areas:
- It quality assures the department’s internal aid performance assessment systems.
- It supports, conducts and reviews program-level evaluations of Australian aid investments.
- Finally, it conducts strategic-level evaluations with a policy or thematic focus.
ODE publishes all of its evaluations. For more information, visit our website.
ODE received the AES Award for Excellence in Evaluation (Public Sector) in 2014 and 2016.
