Introduction to Project Management


Generally considered as the last stage of a project lifecycle, evaluation refers to a stage of systematic research and reflection on “what worked” and “what did not”. This stage produces learnings about the process, which can help support decisions about future projects. In addition, evaluation can be important to promote accountability, as well as to value the voices and opinions of the entire community.

Different from the evaluation of the community mobilization itself, the evaluation of a specific project happens just after the execution of the project. The final deliverable of this stage can be an Implementation Report document, which means a document that summarizes everything that happened during the project, as well as communities’ perceptions and learnings on its implementation.

To reflect these communities’ realities and perceptions, it is important to focus on participatory and community-based evaluations. In this video, Lina Ismail from Dalia association explains how they build a supervision and evaluation committee responsible for organizing the evaluation process.
