USAID/ GEM-3 Project Evaluation Video: What Can We Learn about the Evaluation Process

Quimera was embedded with the Social Impact evaluation team for over three weeks to document Social Impact’s evaluation of the USAID Philippines Growth with Equity in Mindanao-3 Project. GEM-3 operated throughout Mindanao, with a special focus on the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) and other conflict-affected areas of Mindanao. USAID’s Office of Learning, Evaluation and Research (PPPL/LER) wanted to document the GEM-3 evaluation process as a way to capture evaluation in action, to support and illustrate their new evaluation policy, and to share learnings about what makes a good evaluation, from design to implementation.

In this short snippet one of the evaluation team members discusses some of the challenges of trying to quantify project impact.
