Outcome Evaluation – “Increased Production, Productivity and Income Generation in Deprived Sectors and Districts”
The growing demand for development effectiveness is largely based on the realization that producing good “deliverables” is simply not enough. The relevance of efficient or well-managed development projects and outputs is their ability to yield discernible improvements in development conditions and ultimately in people’s lives. Being a key international development agency, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) has been focusing on achieving clearly defined results. This has been pursued in recent times through the results-based management (RBM) approach.
As part of its efforts in enhancing RBM, UNDP has shifted from traditional activity-based project monitoring and evaluation (M&E) to results-oriented M&E, especially outcome M&E that covers a set of related programmes, projects, and strategies intended to achieve a defined outcome. An outcome evaluation assesses how and why an outcome is or not being achieved in a given country context, within a time frame, and the role UNDP and other partners have played in this regard. Outcome evaluations also help to clarify underlying factors affecting the situation, highlight unintended consequences (positive and negative), generate learned and recommend actions to improve performance in future programming.
The Outcome to be evaluated is “Increased production, productivity and income generation in deprived sectors and districts”.
