Evaluation refers to the systematic and rigorous application of recognized methodology to objectively assess the process and outcome of an intervention or policy. An evaluation aims to assess a programme’s efficiency and effectiveness, and its impact and sustainability. Process evaluation examines how a programme was implemented, and whether it operated as intended. It examines the kinds of procedures developed, the activities undertaken and the coverage of the programme . Outcome or impact evaluation helps to determine whether the programme achieved the objectives it was intended to meet. This may include any unintended consequences, both positive or negative (eg. the displacement of crime to another place).
