Accessible, interesting, varied
ONTRAC is our regular newsletter, funded by the NGO Research Programme.
Each issue looks at a different theme of interest to development practitioners, civil society actors and academics. Articles put forward perspectives and experiences from practitioners across the world.
It is published three times a year in electronic and print form and is read around the world.
What is the purpose of post-closure evaluations from the perspective of those commissioning them? What is their value-added as opposed to other forms of follow-up study? Which challenges do commissioners and evaluators face?
ONTRAC 61 brings together three different perspectives regarding post- closure evaluation: that of an organisation commissioning a post-closure evaluation; that of a consultant who carried out a post-closure evaluation using his own resources; and that of a research team that was commissioned to do a large study.
With articles from Janet Clark, Monitoring and Evaluation Manager at VSO; INTRAC Associate Chris Wardle and Community Develeopment Water Special Nagul Zakiriaeva; Dr. Sara Kinsbergen and Christine Plaisier from the Centre for International Development Issues Nijmegen; and INTRAC's Sarah Lewis.
