Innovative, tailored approaches

Monitoring, Evaluation and Program Design

From assignments throughout the Asia Pacific, we have earned a reputation for providing clients with the research, monitoring, and evaluation they need. Drawing on state-of-the-art methods ranging from qualitative fieldwork to random assignment, non-experimental designs, Abt Associates helps answer questions like:

  • What are the most promising approaches to address current development challenges?
  • Do those approaches actually help? Do they offer value for money?
  • Given that a program can work, is it being implemented well? What is its impact?

Abt Associates ability to deliver evidence-based programs emerges from our technical expertise in research, monitoring and evaluation. Our parent company is regularly ranked as one of the top 20 global research firms and this research determines the way that we design and implement programs, as well as the way that we monitor and evaluate their impact. Globally, we have conducted more than 500 specific evaluation assignments in 40 countries. A significant number of these assignments have tracked program results against sector targets in rural development, health and gender.
