Ever conducted an evaluation and wished there was a baseline? How are baseline studies conducted? What goes into establishing a baseline? Is it worth it?
This interactive presentation aims to give attendees some insight into methodologies and practical considerations for conducting baseline studies, with particular insights from doing this in the Pacific. It is based on the presenter’s experience of leading the Monitoring and Evaluation of a three-year program to prevent family violence, which includes conducting baseline and endline studies.
This presentation will cover:
- A brief background of the project and how the M&E works
- Why a baseline study was necessary
- The trials and tribulations of conducting a baseline study in the Pacific
- How the baseline is being used
- What we learnt from the baseline
Audience members will be provided with ample opportunity to ask questions.
