Abstract: DECI introduced Utilization-focused Evaluation to five ICT4D research projects as part of IDRC’s PANAsia program. DECI was an action research project that combined the introduction of UFE with a research component to test how appropriate the approach was for development research projects. They included: the PANACEA: e-health network (based in Pakistan); LIRNEasia that focused on policy and ICTD research (based in Sri Lanka); two small grant programs: ISIF: Information Society Innovation Fund (based in Australia) and SIRCA: Strengthening ICTD Research Capacity in Asia (based in Singapire); and the DREAM-IT: Mongolia Country program. Three regional mentors coached project administrators, researchers and evaluators along the steps of UFE. The three regional mentors were, in turn supported by two co-Principal Investigators based in Canada. DECI used action-research as a methodology to test-drive UFE. In doing so, the mentors, who had a strong evaluation background, learned about UFE through practice. Each project completed an evaluation using UFE; most important, as part of the approach they utilized the evaluation process and findings. DECI produced a series of UFE modules, five case studies, a Primer, and the team presented project summaries at several international conferences.
