Impact evaluation guide for international development

Bond, the international development agency network, has published ‘Impact Evaluation: A Guide for Commissioners and Managers’.

The guide aims to empower commissioners of evaluations to make more informed choices about appropriate evaluation methods. Using the notion of a “design triangle”, it explains different, rigorous ways of showing the contribution of interventions to results, and how these can be considered along with different programme attributes and evaluation questions to choose which method is right for you.

Bond will be working on a practical tool for choosing evaluation methods to accompany the guide.
