Outcome Mapping evaluation of six civil society projects in Bosnia and Herzegovina: summary report

Steve Powell , Ivona Čelebičić

Summary: The present report is an evaluation of six civil society projects in Bosnia and Herzegovina funded by Sida via three framework partners. Sida funds these kinds of project because it sees civil society as having the potential to empower poor people, promote democracy, promote peace and security and develop a global arena.

The evaluation objectives are to explore the individual projects and the overall program of support to civil society in terms of outcomes, relevance and sustainability, as well as to investigate the potential of a new method, Outcome Mapping (OM), for project and program evaluation.

Outcome Mapping (Carden, Smutylo, & Earl, 2002) was chosen as the evaluation method for this evaluation because Sida's intention was to focus particularly on an exploration of immediate outcomes and it was believed that OM is well suited to deliver this kind of information. Moreover Sida and the implementing partners were interested to explore whether OM could mitigate some of the perceived weaknesses of existing planning and monitoring methods and potentially be used more widely in future.
