This is such a helpful document. DE seems like a very relevant eval approach during this (C-19) time of uncertainty and emergent new models for just about everything!

Hi Lucy,

Thanks for the feedback and I absolutely agree - rapidly adapting times call for an adaptive approach like Development Evaluation. I'm glad this resource was helpful for you.

Best,

Alice
