With country portfolio reviews (CPRs) DEval has developed a tool to analyse the entire portfolio of bilateral German development cooperation in a partner country. In the CPR project, country portfolio reviews will be conducted for selected country portfolios. At the same time the tool will be further improved in order to strengthen the strategic management of bilateral development cooperation by Germany's Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).
CPRs address strategic issues at the level of the portfolio as a whole, and provide independent and well-founded information on which to base strategy formation. By developing the CPR tool, the BMZ believes that DEval has made an important contribution toward developing the standards and instruments for reviewing German development cooperation.
