Monitoring and Evaluation Mechanisms for South-South and Triangular Development Cooperation: Lessons from Brazil for the 2030 Agenda

This paper aims to review monitoring and evaluation (M&E) practices from different institutions involved in SSDC/TrC in a key Southern partner, Brazil, systematizing the main lessons, opportunities and obstacles for their improvement in a post-2015 context.

In particular, the paper aims to: (a) map out what has been done so far in M&E by the institutions executing SSDC/TrC in the country; (b) understand how the main stakeholders perceived Brazilian SSC/TrC M&E and particularly its conception and application of SSC principles, measuring process, results and impact, innovative approaches; (c) analyse lessons to inform policies and practices of the development community; and (d) contribute to global initiatives and debates that aim to build better M&E frameworks for SSDC/TrC, including efforts promoted by the Network of Southern Think Tanks (NeST).
