EDA’s evaluation of programmes includes a careful analysis of programme context, objectives, organisational inputs and costs, together with field level assessments of outreach and outcomes over time. Field methods involve a combination of qualitative and quantitative techniques, including household surveys, focus group discussions, key informant interviews and case study profiles – as appropriate to the programme. Non-client comparison groups are included in the research when this is feasible and useful.
