SolutionMUS Evaluation

Evaluation provides evidence of a project’s impact and identifies opportunities for improvement and adaptive management.*

 

The recommended SolutionMUS evaluation framework focuses on three components:

 

What was delivered by the project

The short-term goods or services produced directly by project activities

Examples: water systems constructed, people trained

The specific intermediate results for target beneficiaries?

The medium-term results flowing from combined project outputs

Examples: delivery of water services, changes in hygiene behaviors

The overall, combined longer-term benefits

The long-term benefits produced by project outputs and outcomes

Examples: improved health, increased incomes, increased aquatic biodiversity

 

*Adaptive Management: modifications to project activities based on what is learned from the evaluation
