Monitoring and Evaluation

monitorningHCA is committed to participatory evaluation processes, acknowledging that program stakeholders have a critical role to play in evaluation planning, design and implementation.

We strive to incorporate the perspectives, needs and values of all stakeholders in our monitoring and evaluation processes. In doing so, we believe that the utility of evaluation processes and results increases.


Although we specialize in evaluation and planning, we are also involved in training, needs assessments, group facilitation and extensive cross-cultural work. We bring to assignments a specialization in all aspects of evaluation from the program initiation stage to the completion of impact evaluations.
