Introducing Performance Indicators for South-South Knowledge Exchanges
To measure the development outcomes of SSF-funded knowledge exchanges, a results chain and nine performance indicators were developed by the SSF Secretariat. The results of SSF exchanges will be measured yearly against these indicators. Data gathered through the SSF client satisfaction surveys feed into the indicators, along with figures on World Bank projects and other data sources.
In 2018, the SSF Secretariat conducted a satisfaction survey with 77 representatives of client institutions who had participated as knowledge recipients in the exchanges that were completed in 2018. Feedback was received from respondents in 12 countries (Albania, Argentina, Cameroon, Croatia, Georgia, Guinea, India, Mozambique, Nepal, Pakistan, Tunisia, and Vietnam), representing a survey response rate of 53%.
