Here is a useful and readable guide to the way evaluation, in the past two decades, has emerged from the shadows.

Read it, and make your own evaluation - Developments The book is well written, clear and reasonably concise.... I would have no hesitation in recommending it as a textbook or basic instruction on the topic of evaluation in development aid.... It is likely to be a major reference source for me for some time - Impact Assessment and Project AppraisalClearly this is a most valuable volume for those interested in development assistance - John MacArthur, Journal of Agricultural EconomicsThis book is a must-have for all development professionals.

Basil Cracknell begins by reviewing the state-of-the-art of development aid evaluations, including the history, the basic concepts, the methodological problems associated with the choice of techniques, the differences between monitoring and evaluation, the role of evaluation in organizational learning, how to ensure that evaluation findings lead to action, the need for evaluation reports to be user-friendly, and the role of automated data systems.He then considers the key issues and problems in aid evaluation, such as the trend towards impact evaluation, the importance of sustainability, stakeholder analysis, and special problems associated with sectors such as research and development, poverty alleviation and structural adjustment.He explores how aid evaluators can reconcile the requirements of accountability and objectivity with the growing realization that some kind of participatory approach is essential if one is to really understand the impact of people-centred projects on the intended beneficiaries.
