External Evaluation of the Think Tank Initiative Phase 2 Inception Report

Indevelops has been contracted to undertake the External Evaluation of the Think Tank Initiaitve Phase 2, implemented by IDRC. The first evaluation output, the evaluation Inception report, was approved in July 2015 by the evaluation committee. 

This inception report presents the background, context, evaluation matrix, methods and work plan to be applied in the four-year course of evaluation of the Think Tank Initiaitve (TTI) Phase 2. Based on extensive analysis of the documentation, direct interactions with the TTI Program staff and the evaluation committee, as well as contact with the grantees under TTI Phase 2, the Evaluation Team has reconfirmed the validity of the core elements or the original Indevelop proposal of September 2014, while also adjusting to the need for some modification in approach and team roles.
