As development practitioners we aim to ‘make a difference’ in people’s lives, and Impact Evaluation provides us with the evidence for this. Showing our contribution to development can strengthen our relationship with donors, improve development outcomes and help to influence development policy. This 3-day course provides development practitioners with the necessary methodology and practical knowledge to meet the growing demand for evaluating the impact of development projects and programmes. Developing a Theory of Change and critically reflecting on how social change happens will be central elements throughout the course.
