II-e: Designing and Managing Projects For Results and Evaluability
What if we can build an “evidence eco-system” around our projects and programs to make them more effective, and our evaluations more useful and insightful? Evidence to support evaluations should be identified as early as the project design stage and evolve throughout the project life cycle. In the workshop, participants will better understand how an integrated approach to building an evidence-based and results-orientated design is critical for project success and more effective evaluations.
