Evaluability Assessment (EA) is a systematic approach to planning evaluation projects. It helps to inform the timing of an evaluation and to improve prospects of yielding useful results. EA can improve decision-making by sharpening the focus of interventions that are put forward as candidates for evaluation, and establishing the likelihood of measurable impact, before resources are committed to a full scale evaluation. This workshop is open to all PHW staff, but it helps if you have a project in mind that you can bring for discussion.
