  1. Causal Link Monitoring

    Synonyms: 
    CLM
    Approach

    Causal Link Monitoring (CLM) integrates design and monitoring to support adaptive management of projects. CLM helps project planners and managers identify the processes that are required to achieve desired results, and then to observe whether those processes take place, and how.

  3. Iterative Design and Monitoring for Adaptive Management: How Causal Link Monitoring can help

    Development actors are embracing the concept and practice of adaptive management, using evidence to inform ongoing revisions throughout implementation. In this guest blog, Heather Britt, Richard Hummelbrunner and Jackie Greene discuss a practical approach that donors and partners can use to agree on what’s most important to monitor as a project continues to evolve. 

  4. C4D Hub: Develop program theory or logic model

    Development Theme

    What is it?

    A program theory or logic model explains how the activities of an intervention are understood to contribute to a chain of results (short-term outputs, medium-term outcomes) that produce ultimate intended or actual impacts. It can be shown in the form inputs->processes->outputs ->outcomes -> impacts but sometimes other forms are more useful.

  5. 52 weeks of BetterEvaluation: Week 20: Defining what needs to be evaluated

    Blog
    13th May, 2013

    Whether you are commissioning an evaluation, designing one or implementing one, having - and sharing - a very clear understanding of what is being evaluated is paramount. For complicated or complex interventions this isn't always as straight forward as it sounds, which is why BetterEvaluation offers specific guidance on options for doing this.

  6. Models of Causality and Causal Inference

    Guide
    2012

    This background paper from Barbara Befani is an appendix from the UK Government's Department for International Development's working paper Broadening the range of designs and methods for impact evaluations. The paper reviews the various notions of causality in the philosophy of science that are 'embedded' into everyday activity.

  7. Check the results are consistent with causal contribution

    Task

    One of the tasks involved in understanding causes is to check whether the observed results are consistent with a cause-effect relationship between the intervention and the observed impacts.

  8. Causality: Models, Reasoning and Inference

    Resource
    Overview
    2009

    This book offers a comprehensive exposition of modern analysis of causation. It shows how causality has grown into a mathematical theory with significant applications in the fields of statistics, artificial intelligence, economics, philosophy, cognitive science, and the health and social sciences. Propensity Scores are discussed in detail from Page 348 in the unit titled Understanding Propensity Scores.

  9. 52 weeks of BetterEvaluation: Week 3: Q & A about drawing logic models

    Blog
    15th January, 2013

    This week on BetterEvaluation we're presenting Questions and Answers about logic models. A logic model represents a program theory - how an intervention (such as a program, project or policy) is understood to contribute to its impacts.
