Monitoring and Evaluation Short Cuts

Communicating and Reporting on an Evaluation

This edition of Short Cuts provides practical instructions on how to design an evaluation communication and reporting strategy using tailored reporting formats that are responsive to audience profiles and information needs. Most donors require midterm and final evaluations, and best practice indicates that these periodic assessments provide the most detailed information about a particular project’s progress. An evaluation represents a large investment in time and funds, yet private voluntary organizations (PVOs) often report that evaluation reports are not read or shared, and in some cases, a report’s recommendations are not used.
