Course Description

Project evaluation is a requirement before funding of programs is done.  For instance, the use of recognised assessment techniques for project proposals has become mandatory as part of the selection and justification process for projects funded by the international financial institutions such as the World Bank, the International Finance Corporation, the African, Asian and Inter-American Development Banks as well as regional banks and other donor agencies. Project evaluation therefore ensures that the right questions are asked and appropriate assessments made before resources are committed. This evaluative process shares some similarities in public project appraisal and in making investment decisions in private business. There are also some important differences.
