"This updated edition of Evaluating Environment in International Development builds on the key message put forward by its editor, Juha Uitto: "Evaluation must up its game". This makes the book a great contribution to long-term and current events thinking on evaluation, environment and development." -- Jean-Marc Coicaud, Distinguished Professor of Law and Global Affairs, Rutgers School of Law, State University of New Jersey, USA"This book could not be more timely. Evaluating Environment in International Development in its first edition was already a seminal book and a reference to the community of evaluators and researchers working on international development. The second edition addresses spot on the challenges of identifying the intended and unintended consequences of development interventions on the environment, particularly those driven by the search of growth. It calls for a truly systemic view of the interaction between natural and human systems. It provides innovative interpretative frameworks and examples of evaluations that contribute to environmentally sound sustainable development. A must read as countries redouble efforts to recover from the COVID-19 crisis with the aim of building forward better." -- Oscar A. Garcia, Director, Independent Evaluation Office, United Nations Development Programme (UNDP)"For thinkers and practitioners alike, this volume is an excellent compendium of papers that bring together state of the art thinking in evaluation related to environment, while combining it with real-world experiences and lessons on the ground. The scholarship and wisdom of this volume is illustrated by the range of topics it covers in environmental evaluation that cover for instance, the challenges of examining trans-boundary problems on the one hand and precisely defined disaster risk reduction on the other. I recommend this collection highly." -- Jyotsna Puri, Director of the Environment, Climate, Gender and Social Inclusion Division, at the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD)
