National Council for the Evaluation of Social Development Policy (CONEVAL)
The National Council for the Evaluation of Social Development Policy (CONEVAL)is a decentralized public agency that coordinates the evaluation of the National Social Development Policy as well as other policies, programs, or interventions related to social development. CONEVAL provides guidelines for evaluations that must be followed by other public agencies that implement social programs. At the same time, CONEVAL can directly contract evaluations on social policies and programs, and provide recommendations for improvement based on available evaluations and research. Among the evaluations implemented or coordinated by CONEVAL, we can find evaluations of the design of social programs, evaluations of processes and strategies, and impact evaluations. Currently CONEVAL is particularly interested in identifying evidence on interventions that could improve indicators of the multidimensional poverty measurement, particularly those around food insecurity.
