An Evaluation Approach Paper: Opportunities for the Majority Initiative
The objectives of the evaluation are to assess Opportunities for the Majority (OMJ)'s relevance vis-à-vis its mandate, its effectiveness in achieving development goals, its efficiency in delivering products, and the sustainability of both projects and the "business model" supported by the initiative. Considering the early stage of disbursement, the evaluation will represent a first stage assessment of OMJ results and sustainability. Whenever documented evidence cannot be inferred, the evaluation will look at the likely effect of the initiative on the markets. OVE will use four tools to assess OMJ results: desk reviews, field missions, surveys, and, where feasible, quantitative evaluations.
