The SV programme evaluation will be a continuous empowering process using a combination of output monitoring, according to the indicators in the SV programme logical framework, and formative evaluation that promotes learning and builds capacity at the same time as monitoring the programme activities.

Copyright CARE.Danmark 4The Evaluation itself should generate impetus for improvements in network effectiveness during the lifetime of the programme. This will benefit the participating networks in the long term, even if there is no guarantee of continuing funding beyond the current phase to December 2013. Furthermore, it will strengthen the case for further strategic support in an eventual Phase 3.

The SV participant networks are very diverse and have different capacities, governance arrangements and relationships to their constituent members. For some the SV programme will constitute only a minor part of their funding, whereas for others it may be more significant. Some will be focussed internally and consider SV as primarily a funding source to develop their network activities, while others may be looking to SV as a source of external learning and peer support. Also, the criteria which networks use for their own self-evaluation, reflecting the priorities of their constituent members, may or may not be relevant to the SV programme. This heterogeneity, between and within networks, has to be borne in mind in designing the Evaluation methodology for SV.
