As compared with monitoring, evaluation is a more thorough examination, at specified points in time of programmes and projects performance, usually with emphasis on impact for people and also on relevance, effectiveness, efficiency, sustainability, and replicability. Systematic evaluation of development programmes and projects was conceived and formalized from the 1960s onwards by donor agencies, which wanted a ‘true’ account of how well things had been done and what had been achieved. The idea was to have ‘objective’ assessments, done by ‘independent’ persons using ‘professional’ methods of data collection and analysis. The progress of evaluation reports with a 6 months breakup is shown in the Figure 2. It can be seen that 22 projects have been evaluated in the period July 2010 to December 2010.
