Shah's New Evaluation Policy

People keep talking about it, but they all don't want to embed the video of Shah discussing his new plans a USAID evaluation policy. I like one-stop-shop posts when it comes to videos. So do watch the talk from Shah above.

I am a bit more wait and see type when it comes to big things like the new evaluation policy. However, it is hard not to be optimistic by the steps that Shah has been taking. I was quite pessimistic when he spoke of introducing more transparency back in September, but it looks like Shah is really following through. This makes the press from tea party types to de-fund USAID all the more worrying.
