Klaver, D.C.; Prasad Mohapatra, Bibhu; Smidt, Hester


Evaluators, implementers, and financial partners are increasingly concerned about their confidence that contribution claims made by Lobby and Advocacy (L&A) programs are being confirmed. This paper draws lessons learnt from the evaluations of both international and national L&A efforts for which a Theory Based Evaluation (TBE) methodology was developed, inspired by Process Tracing and Contribution Analysis.
