Evaluation Glossary


The extent to which the objectives of an intervention are consistent with beneficiariesí requirements, country needs, global priorities and partnersí and donorsí policies. Retrospectively, the question of relevance often becomes a question as to whether the objectives of an intervention or its design are still appropriate given changed circumstances.
