Evaluation & indicators

We work on projects that aim to measure the effect and effectiveness of policies and programmes.

Trackers and indicators
We devise, develop and maintain indicator sets to monitor progress  - of cities and sectors, as well as policies and campaigns.

Programme evaluation
We undertake major evaluation studies - particularly in the domain of behaviour change - that best capture and assess outputs, outcomes and impacts in a way that is meaningful and useful for our clients, and practicable within their available budget.

Formative evaluation
We analyse the results from monitoring and evaluation and feed into both real-time programme amendments and into the development of future strategies, policies and programmes.

Examples of our evaluations include (click on the links below for project information):
