At the DAC Working Parry on Aid Evaluation Workshop on Pove-rty Reduction, organized by the Department for International Development (DFID) and held in Edinburgh, Scotland, on October 1 1-1 3, 1999, a paper commissioned by DFID reviewed international experiences in evaluation. It noted that evaluation capacity development was so far limited to the development of the capacities of the public sector without the involvement of civil society. This gap had already been identified by the Operations Evaluation Department (OLD) of the World Bank; the workshop whose proceedings are reported in this publication took place just the following week, on October 1 8, in Accra, Ghana. As part of OED's program for evaluation capacity development, managed by its Partnerships and Knowledge Programs Group (OEDPK), a diagnosis of monitoring and evaluation capacities in Ghana was undertaken in June 1999 (see Annex C). One of the options identified in that report was support for civil society involvement in performance assessment through a series of measures, including a workshop such as the one reported in these proceedings. OED acknowledges the valuable advice provided by the Bank's NGO Unit, particularly from Michael Edwards (who at the time was working with the Unit and who provided excellent suggestions), William Reuben, and Najma Siddiqi. We also thank George Greene and Ted Jackson for their timely advice. The enthusiastic and efficient support of the World Bank's team in Ghana greatly facilitated the successful imnplementation of the workshop; we are therefore very grateful to Peter Harrold and his team, especially Guenter Heidenhof, Camille Lampart, and Kofi Marrah. Finally, it should be noted that, in addition to the editors, the following colleagues in OEDPK's Outreach and Dissemination Unit cotrbuted to the production of this volume: Elizabeth Campbell-Pag6 (task contri to liteam leader), Caroline McEuen (editor), Kathy Strauss and Aichin Jones (graphics and layout), and Juicy Qureishi-Huq (administrative assistant).
