Evaluation Capacity Building

Evaluation Capacity Building (ECB) is an intentional process (of learning, training, mentoring, coaching, resources development etc) to support individuals, groups and organisations to learn about what constitutes effective, useful, and professional evaluative thinking and practice, in order that they are able to effectively undertake and use evaluation in their day to day decision making, in ways that improve, adapt and renew what they do, for the benefit of the people they work for and with.

The long term outcomes of evaluation capacity building can be:

  • Improved performance in relation to mission.
  • Improved delivery of effective services.
  • Increased credibility and legitimacy internally and externally.
  • Increased ability to renew and continually adapt and achieve sustainability.
