Rethinking Evaluation Criteria: Implications Of Inequities And Sustainability For Training Evaluators




Rethinking evaluation criteria in light of issues of inequities and sustainability – additional criteria that are needed:

  • Reach
    • The share of members of the target group involved in an intervention is often very limited.  In reality, we are often only reaching a tiny fraction.  This means that the benefits of a project are also very limited. 
  • Potential for Local/National Replication
    • To what extent can the model introduced by the intervention be replicated by national/local institutions?  For example: projects provide expensive equipment to locals without sufficient attention to sustainability.
