Evaluation

LAMP partners with external evaluators and third-party monitors (TPM) to help evaluate cost, efficiency, effectiveness, equity and sustainability of development programmes. We provide specialised value for money (VFM) inputs, including cost and cost-effectiveness analysis. We also assess programme systems for measuring and managing VFM, to help programmes identify how to use and adjust their resources to deliver the greatest benefits for the communities they serve. Throughout the evaluation process we aim to strengthen monitoring frameworks and provide strategic recommendations, to help programmes achieve longer-term change through learning and adaptation.
