Speaker information

Richard Longurst

There has been a huge increase in the interest, advice and research on evaluation methods over the last 10 years in the area of international development evaluations, and similarly in the domestic scene. This is very welcome, of course. But many practitioners have found this frustrating as there is scant reference to the quantity and quality of resources required to implement evaluations (budget line, personnel, management expertise). These resources are often very limited, have to be deployed to best methodological effect and also recognise the governance structure of the commissioning agency.

Richard Longhurst is a development economist and a Research Associate at the Institute of Development Studies at Sussex University. He has worked as an evaluation manager and evaluator for several multilateral development organisations.
