Impact evaluation assesses the relevance and effectiveness of projects, programmes, and public policies. Counterfactual impact, in particular, is one of the best techniques to measure and compare results with what would have happened without the intervention. In this course, participants practice this skill, and others, as they perform individual impact evaluations based on case studies.
Join this course to support the outcomes of projects, programmes, and public policy through impact evaluation.

This course balances theoretical and practical work for success
The aim of impact evaluation is to assess the relevance and effectiveness of a project, programme or public policy in bringing about a desired change in the well-being of the target population, and to measure improvements in pre-defined indicators in the sector concerned that can be attributed to the development intervention. An evaluation is usually undertaken during a defined period subsequent to an intervention, using a variety of techniques, including counterfactual impact, that measure/compare the results achieved with what would have happened (to the beneficiaries) had the project/programme intervention not taken place. Participants will be assisted in performing an impact evaluation of a selected project (case study), putting into practice what they have learned on the course.
This workshop targets technical specialists responsible for the monitoring and evaluation of projects and programmes, as well as officials from planning ministries, the UN and NGOs. The course is also intended to meet the needs of social partners engaged in the design and implementation of development projects and programmes. Members of the research community contributing to the design, implementation and evaluation of development programmes are also invited to participate.
This week-long course provides a thorough introduction to impact evaluation concepts and methods.
Participants deepen their knowledge of impact evaluation techniques for development.
This goal is to strengthen technical capacities to design quantitative and qualitative impact evaluations and cost-benefit analyses.
