Evaluation -Is a periodic assessment of the relevance, efficiency, effectiveness, impact, and/or sustainability of an activity or intervention; -Is a systematic search for answers about an intervention (project, program, or policy); and -Measures the effects of an intervention and compares them with the goals and objectives of the intervention. Evaluation Capacity Development (ECD) efforts strengthen and sustain both individuals and organizations to: Access, build, and implement evaluative knowledge and skills; Design, implement, and manage effective evaluation processes and findings; and Use evaluations as a performance improvement tool. By cultivating a spirit of continual learning and capacity development, organizations are able to guide their own team members, stakeholders, and others along a more direct path to program effectiveness and accountability.  ECD also fosters the implementation of Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) knowledge and practices. M&E, an essential component of results-based management, provides information for designing, implementing, and assessing the results of government, civil society, and private sector policies, programs, and projects.  Used well, M&E can help policymakers and program managers determine what works, what is not working, and why.  M&E in the public sector can also: Support evidence-based policymaking, particularly in the context of national budget cycle and national planning;   Guide ministries and agencies in managing activities at the sector, program, and project levels, including service delivery to beneficiaries; and Enhance accountability and transparency.
