Follow-up on Evaluations
Evaluations help to improve response by providing information about what works, what doesn’t, and why.This learning bolsters the effectiveness of aid by offering recommendations to enrich practice and hold organisations accountable for results.
A follow-up process is a clear opportunity for stakeholders to review what has happened since the conclusion of evaluations, making progress better known within a wider community and helping to motivate all those involved.
Although implementing evaluations requires ample resources and human energy, it is essential that the momentum created by critical assessments is sustained. Only when the beneficial consequences of evaluations are clearly identified can staff and organisations have confidence in quality and accountability processes, and participate in bringing about necessary change.
