This handbook provides guidance for conducting and managing evaluations, including a conceptual framework for thinking about evaluation as a relevant and useful program tool. It was written primarily for project directors who have direct responsibility for the ongoing evaluation of W.K. Kellogg Foundation-funded projects and Kellogg Foundation Grant Applicants.
This guide, written by Julia Coffman for UNICEF, looks at strategies and features of evaluations that focus on assessing the impact of advocacy campaigns. The key element of the guide is built around five questions for planning advocacy monitoring and evaluation. A number of case studies are also included to demonstrate how these key questions were answered in the field.
