International Development programs often face significant challenges when confronted with complex and rapidly changing conditions that do not neatly fit within traditional models of evaluation. Developmental Evaluation (DE) has emerged in recent years as an alternative approach, seeking to create structured feedback mechanisms that can effectively support innovation. This document describes two DE experiences in International Development projects. DE has shown promise as a means of focusing programs on outcomes, process and strategy together, which might be its biggest contribution. Embedding the DE in a Utilization-Focused Evaluation framework can be a good strategy to ground the process around practical use.
