Purpose

A formative evaluation seeks to understand how a programme is operating, and inform decision making aimed at improvement. This purpose shaped the three overarching evaluation questions:

1. To what degree is the PRA being implemented as planned?

2. How does the PRA design work in practice?

  • What is working well and why?
  • What is not working so well and why?

3. What changes can be made to design and implementation to strengthen the PRA?
