Community-Based Evaluation: An Overview 

Community-Based Evaluation actively involves stakeholders in all elements of evaluation, from planning to implementation to using results in decision-making.

Community-based evaluation projects follow 4 phases with 11 non-linear steps. In community-based evaluation, the relational activities are as important as technical activities. These 4 phases can also be used to help you and your organization reflect on your work, and its connection to the SDGs.
