Evaluations help organizations to account for results and use of resources and to learn, acquire insight in change processes and adapt smoothly as and when necessary. ACE Europe examines, together with the client and the organization, what the demands and needs actually are and develops an appropriate methodology: what does the organization want to know, proof or demonstrate or learn, why and for whom? A good interaction with all stakeholders involved and a consistent gender perspective are key in our way of working Our approach consists essentially of a combination of methods and techniques for qualitative and quantitative data collection and analysis. We combine elements from existing methods such as
Most Significant Change, outcome harvesting, Theory of Change, timeline, 5 Core Capabilities for assessment of capacity, contribution analysis, focus group discussions, process tracing, …. We work as much as possible in tandem with colleagues from countries where the evaluation is carried out and in multi-disciplinary teams.
There are different types of evaluations. You can count on ACE Europe for (amongst others):
Evaluation of the results of a programme aimed at the creation of a biogas sector in African countries, based on household questionnaires and a survey amongst professionals.
Evaluation of the instruments that the Belgian NGO uses to support learning about the vocational training program with the partner organizations
Evaluation of the fund and more specifically the mechanism that provides financial services and advice to initiatives of farmers' organizations.
