Evaluation Reports


This document presents lessons learned about developing and using indicators and data collection tools to measure the impact of interventions designed to reduce both poverty and conflict.

Recommendations include:

  • Focus on a limited number of more precise, less nuanced questions in both survey and focus group data to simplify data analysis and minimize ambiguous results.
  • Simplify participatory tools and surveys so that they take less time to administer, more interviews can be conducted, and sample size can increase.
