DESCRIPTION

Praise for the First Edition:

`[This book] raises some important issues that need to be pursued in the future: how to represent and evaluate complex development initiatives' - Development in Practice

This book is the revised edition of the author's earlier and very successful Evaluation Frameworks for Development Programmes and Projects (SAGE, 1998).

Divided into three parts, this is a comprehensive and holistic, yet easily accessible, book on the context, focus, scope and methodology of evaluations in the field of societal development.

Part one discusses the general conceptual and analytical framework of evaluation. In Part Two the general framework made up of classical categories of relevance, impact, efficiency, effectiveness, sustainability and replicability is succinctly discussed. Part Three discusses the evaluator's craft.

Using a number of original and innovative case studies to illustrate the processes and perspectives of evaluations, this book draws on applications of evaluation tools from `real-life' situations.

Focusing on development programmes and projects in developing countries, the conceptual and methodological frameworks can be applied in evaluation research across the social sciences.
