Baseline, Monitoring and Evaluation Surveyes
ACT has gained huge knowledge and expertise in this kind of surveys from the day of its foundation. Thanks to the well functioning regional network, strong technical base, analytical resources and different research techniques, ACT is implementing large-scale baseline and evaluation surveys both in Georgia and beyond the borders of Georgia.
Baseline survey is by no means very important in planning phase of any kind of program or project. It will greatly assist you to determine: the environment, socio-economical, cultural, demographic profile or values of target segments where the project will be implemented. Without baseline survey it is hard to distinguish what has changed as a result of specific activity, or which component of the activity worked effectively.
Monitoring of implementation of ongoing projects will give us the possibility to see how the processes are going, what its strong and weak parts are, which components are implementing adequately and which are not. In the implementation phase of the program it is valuable to know what should be done differently in order to get more effective result. All these will help you modify the ongoing process according to needs.
After the project is implemented, as a result effectiveness of its results is evaluated. In these kinds of surveys it is revealed: how visible changes have the program generate on target groups, what casual (unplanned) effect and impact did the program have generally on the environment. Impact evaluation is more informative in case of existence of baseline survey, the comparison of baseline and evaluation surveys will give the possibility to clearly identify the impact effect.
