Impact monitoring and evaluation of projects/ policies, beyond being required, is something of utmost importance either in terms of shaping the activities and/ or investments under projects/ policies in order to better meet the needs and objectives, or in terms of showing the difference made under the projects/ policies, the outputs and the outcomes.
All project/policy needs at least 3 waves of monitoring and evaluation surveys: one as baseline in order to know the t0 situation; the second as mid-term evaluation in order to monitor and evaluate the progress and the third at the end of the project/ policy implementation in order to show the results and the impact the project/ policy made in the target communities.
