2015 (English)In: The Politics of Evidence and Results in International Development: Playing the Game to Change the Rules? / [ed] Rosalind Eyben, Irene Guijt, Chris Roche and Cathy Shutt, Rugby: Practical Action Publishing, 2015Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

Sida, the Swedish International Development Agency, has repeatedly, over decades, tried to introduce a stronger focus on 'results' and it has always resulted in a (re-)introduction of a management technology , based on a derivate of the logical framework. Since 2006, the 'results agenda' has been a top political priority, with large organizational and cultural changes within Sida. The chapter concludes that, although there might be factors that support the success of the current effort, these changes may hamper the achievement of development results on the ground and be just another 'tide of reform'.
