The course involves the application of Decision Focused Evaluation (DFE) for researchers. DFE tailors Impact Evaluation (IE) to the decision-making needs and constraints of implementers. The course examines the need and importance of evidence to support decision-making processes across various sectors. This is backed by evidence from a study undertaken by NIERA to determine stakeholders’ demand for IE, document gaps and identify opportunities for DFE across East Africa. The study suggests that lack of technical capacity hampers potential for IE to be used as a common research, program and policy tool.
