Term2.png JOINT EVALUATION
Is an evaluation in which more than one organization participates. [1] Joint evaluations have the potential to bring benefits to all stakeholders in a particular programme or project. Specifically, "they provide stakeholders an opportunity to harmonize and align the processes of evaluation, to build participation and ownership, to share the burden of work involved, to increase the acceptance and legitimacy of findings and recommendations, for mutual capacity building and learning between the partners, and to reduce the overall number of evaluations undertaken". In this way they have the potential of "reducing transaction costs and administrative demands" on programme or project beneficiaries". [2]
