On-going Projects

Evaluation of refugee projects supported by the Representative of the Federal Government for Migration, Refugees and Integration4/20193/2020Beauftragte der Bundesregierung für Migration, Flüchtlinge und Integration

Project Manager: Dr. Vera Hennefeld

Contact Person: Dr. Vera Hennefeld

Staff: M.A. Sandra Bäthge, M.A. Niklas Zierke, Janis Wicke


In 2019, 25 refugee projects are being supported by the Representative of the Federal Government for Migration, Refugees and Integration in three areas, i.e. strengthening volunteers in refugee assistance, empowerment and prevention of violence, and political and social participation. The funding aims at contributing to an improved integration of refugees in Germany. The goal of the evaluation is to assess the goal achievement, efficacy and efficiency of the funded projects and to develop recommendations for future funding of such projects. At the same time the evaluation shall support the projects in setting up and implementing a results-based monitoring system. The evaluation is designed as an accompanying evaluation with formative and summative elements. It also involves a capacity building component. In terms of methodology, the evaluation will rely on a mix of qualitative and quantitative data collection and analysis methods. Among others, a document review, guided interviews, focus group discussions as well as an online survey are planned.
Evaluation of Individual Projects of the International Climate Initiative (IKI)4/20194/2021Bundesministerium für Umwelt, Naturschutz und nukleare Sicherheit (BMU)

Project Manager: Dr. Stefan Silvestrini

Since 2008, the International Climate Initiative (IKI) is funding initiatives regarding (i) climate protection, (ii) adaptation to the impacts of climate change, (iii) conserving natural carbon sinks and (iv) the protection of biological diversity in developing and newly industrialising countries on a project basis. Overall, the IKI now includes almost 600 individual projects and 2.8 billion euros in funding. The IKI focuses on climate protection which comprises almost half of the projects. There was a first evaluation conducted between 2010 and 2013 that included 115 projects. Within this evaluation, a full survey of the projects completed or almost completed by 2011 was realised. The current initiative aims at the evaluation of the further projects completed by the end of 2019. The individual project evaluations consist of detailed analyses on the basis of the OECD’’s DAC criteria as well as other project specific criteria. In terms of the impact chain, the focus lies on the analysis of the inputs, outputs and outcomes. Higher-level impacts are analysed on the basis of the reliable information available at the point of evaluation.
Scientific support of an impact analysis of the project “egal war gestern” (towards sustainability at vocational schools)6/20188/2019Landesbund für Vogelschutz in Bayern (LBV) e.V.

Project Manager: Dr. Vera Hennefeld

Staff: M.A. Sandra Bäthge, Janis Wicke


The Landesbund für Vogelschutz in Bayern (LBV) e.V. for the second time is implementing the project “Towards sustainability at vocational schools” in the school term 2018/19. It aims at mobilizing the youth for matters of sustainability. More precisely, the project is geared towards students at Bavarian vocational schools who find themselves in the important period of professional orientation. The goal is to direct their attention to sustainability questions and to strengthen their awareness of those issues. To achieve this goal, the students are expected to independently implement projects in their respective schools in order to contribute to a more sustainable school life.

The project is subject to an impact analysis, which is being jointly implemented by LBV and CEval GmbH within the context of an accompanying evaluation. The purpose is to determine whether the intended effects of the project are actually achieved, that is, whether the attitudes and behavior of the participating students actually change in relation to sustainability matters and whether those matters are more readily integrated into the everyday life at Bavarian vocational schools. In terms of methodology the analysis will be based on a standardized survey before and after the project with both the participating students and a comparison group of students. Furthermore, there will be guided interviews with the teachers who support the students in the implementation of their projects before and after the project.

Former Projects

Development of a systematic set of social inequality indicators in the context of German development cooperation10/201910/2019Deutsche Gesellschaft für internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ)

Project Manager: Dr. Stefan Silvestrini

Contact Person: Janis Wicke


In the context of of the Sustainable Development (SDG 2030) goals, the United Nations have placed the reduction of social inequalities at the center of international development politics. Against this backdrop, altering social inequalities has gained importance in the field of German development cooperation. The evaluation of the impact of developmental projects on social inequalities requires a set of specific and valid indicators.

CEval has compiled a set of social inequality indicators and developed a systematic approach to categorize the indicators by vertical and horizontal dimensions of inequality, sectors and operational level. CEval has developed the adaption of relevant indicators to the context of german development cooperation and the projects of GIZ.
