Transforming Knowledge into Change

The Challenge of Assessing Policy and Advocacy Activities: Part II - Moving from Theory to Practice

This report synthesizes the results of a series of discussions that were a response to Blueprint's October 2005 report, "The Challenge of Assessing Policy and Advocacy Activities: Strategies for a Prospective Evaluation Approach" (q.v.) The discussions centered on three key themes of the 2005 publication:

  • developing a theory of change,
  • defining benchmarks and indicators and collecting data, and
  • using findings.

This report is organized into two broad sections:

  • a summary of participants’ feedback and recommendations, and
  • specific suggestions from participants on implementing an advocacy evaluation.
