Impact Assessment

How can you collect evidence on the direct cause-and-effect relationship between your work and the impact that has followed?

If you are seeking evidence as the basis for policy-making, impact assessment is a constant process in your work. This particular type of evaluation seeks to assess the social, economic, and environmental effects that can be directly linked to your policies. Impact evaluation is increasingly serving as a foundation for the greater accountability, innovation, learning, and enhanced wellbeing of key stakeholders. 

In addition to addressing the basic question of whether or not a program is effective, impact evaluations can also be used to explicitly test alternative program modalities or design innovations. An ideal impact assessment includes a baseline evaluation, with a combination of quantitative and qualitative data.

Impact assessments are widely used in all sectors, including non-governmental, donor organizations, governmental institutions and private companies.
