Evaluation
Approach

The key aspects that need to be examined from an evaluation perspective are:

Implementability

What this fundamentally means is how well the concepts are suited for deployment on-field. This includes among others, the availability and quality of resources to execute the concept, the complexity of the implementation process, the levels of engagement required with stakeholders, and how closely the concept  implementation matches operational expectations (also called ‘adherence’). 

Comprehensibility

Every concept targets at least one specific user group, with some targeting two or even more. Comprehensibility essentially means whether these user groups are able to intuitively grasp the contents of the concept

Uptake

Evaluation of uptake is more focused on assessing the outcomes as stated in the theory of change. This deals with questions like whether the target users are using the concept as intended, and if so, what are the specific factors that are responsible for it. 

Behaviour Shift

Once the concepts have witnessed uptake, there is  the question of how it impacts the behaviour of the target users. This again draws from the theory of change, and can be measured primarily in terms of outcomes and impact achieved. 

Sustainability
and Compensatory Action

Aspects of program sustainability and compensatory action are in a way, about synchronizing the entire engine dynamically through a series of measures that evolve constantly with time.
