The training goal is that participants become conversant with the principles underlying the selection of an appropriate design for an evaluation in the humanitarian context and will be able to identify data sources and methods used to acquire information to assess project impact. Participants should become able to critically analyse both the opportunities and the limitations that emerge when working with a given evaluation approach.
