Managing Evaluations in the Field : Step-by-Step Planning Guidance - Analysis & Evidence

This guidance is designed for individuals or teams in ICRC delegations who manage evaluations in the field. The ICRC follows a uniform process for evaluations and the document offers nine steps for evaluation managers to follow, with a corresponding set of mandatory deliverables.
