Description: Harvesting effects is particularly useful in complex situations, where it is difficult to predefine results and adaptive management is required. Unlike some evaluation or monitoring and evaluation approaches, impact harvesting does not measure progress towards predetermined objectives or outcomes. It allows you to gather evidence of what has changed and determine if an intervention has contributed to those changes. This training allows you to develop an understanding of the concepts of harvesting effects. At the end of the training, you will have the necessary skills to:

Program: This training is organized in three stages, mixing distance and face-to-face.

2- Face-to-face phase – June 22 and 23, 2023: 14 p.m.
These two days of face-to-face training in Paris will have a participatory character: participants will often work in sub-groups and develop a design for their own project. A case study will be used to practice the analysis and interpretation phase.

Evaluation of the two days.
Day 3- Remote phase – follow-up of participants from June 26 to November 28, 2023: 8 hours
