Evaluation Glossary

Ex-post Evaluation

Evaluation of an intervention after it has been completed. It may be undertaken directly after or long after completion. The intention is to identify the factors of success or failure, to assess the sustainability of results and impacts, and to draw conclusions that may inform other interventions.
