Impact assessment and the quest for the Holy Grail

Authors: Common Fund for Commodities, KIT
Publication date: 2014

This piece examines the prevailing thinking and trends in evaluation (specifically impact assessment), which is important for understanding how a contest of ideas has become something of a battleground in the quest for better evidence. It is particularly relevant for the many organisations, who desire methodological rigour in their evaluations and yet have to be realistic when it comes to evaluation budgets.
