The SDC measures the impact of its efforts through the continuous monitoring of ongoing projects and through evaluation. These tools allow the SDC to continuously review and improve its programmes and projects, and the implementation of strategies. Results-based management of programmes and projects is a core component of the SDC's organisational culture.
Tools for measuring impact
Evaluations can address issues that are not readily apparent in the monitoring of ongoing projects, and enable complex questions to be examined from an external perspective. Evaluations also help to demonstrate in a transparent way the relevance, efficiency, effectiveness, impact and sustainability of the SDC's programmes.
