TDR performance

Measuring not only what we do but how we do it

TDR performance measurement is guided by the TDR performance assessment framework. The framework has been developed in consultation with key stakeholders to help guide implementation of TDR’s strategy. It has the following objectives:

  • Promote continuous performance improvement through organizational review, learning and informed decision-making.
  • Enhance accountability to stakeholders, including beneficiaries, partners and resource contributors.
