Context: Practitioners may need to periodically adjust strategies and actions to account for changed conditions, address unforeseen obstacles or mitigate unintended consequences.  We do this through evaluation and adaptive management. Evaluation is the analysis of data collected through monitoring and other sources. It should assess progress toward outcomes and intermediate results, using indicators identified in the monitoring and evaluation plan. Also as identified in the monitoring and evaluation plan, evaluation should produce results tailored to influence key audiences and identify risks or impacts that need to be further mitigated.

Step 13. Evaluation

Purpose
1.Evaluate available data from monitoring and other sources to inform adaptive management, assess a strategy’s impact, influence key actors, and contribute to the evidence base.

Products:
1.Evaluation analysis results
2.Communication products (white papers, scientific publications, annual reports)

1. Evaluate data from monitoring and other sources.
The monitoring and evaluation plan specifies indicators and threshold values that can be used to determine whether progress is on track, adaptive management thresholds are required, or there are unintended impacts to people. ​
