Evaluating change in market systems: theory meets practice

Published by
BEAM Exchange, LEO

Presentation from the BEAM Conference 2016, which examined at theory and practice of evaluation of market systems approaches by looking at practical examples of ongoing or completed evaluations. The BEAM Evaluation Guide and LEO's Evaluation Framework were presented to uncover what’s new about the methodology suggested in the two and what the specificities of an evaluation approach that is adapted to market systems approaches should be. An ensuing discussion, compares these two theories to what is happening in practice and what current challenges are including a focus on what evidence donors are asking for.
